|Palmar-Plantar Erythrodysesthesia||Device: Vitamin B6 cream Device: Placebo Vitamin B6 cream||Not Applicable|
This will be a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study with 100 cancer patients that will receive chemotherapy treatment with capecitabine and/or pegylated liposomal doxorubicin. The selection of potential participants will be based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. Patients will be randomly allocated either to the treatment group or the placebo group. Treatment will be delivered daily (t.d.s) and assessments will take place at 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks.
The intervention group will receive the application of topical vitamin B6 cream to the hands and/or feet of the patients and the control group will receive the placebo.
At both baseline and follow-up, patients in both groups will be assessed for their degree of palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia, the Quality of Life, the need for dose-limiting due to PPE and Pain intensity using standardized rating scales. Data will be analysed with inferential and descriptive statistics.

- PPE grade [ Time Frame: up to 4 weeks ]The grade of PPE will be assessed with a standardised three-grade system previously used in capecitabine clinical trials (Scheithauer et al 2003)
- Health Related Quality of Life [ Time Frame: up to 4 weeks ]The HRQoL of the patients will be assessed with the EORTC QLQ -C30 module which has been developed and validated explicitly for patients suffering from cancer.
- Quality of Life in relation to PPE [ Time Frame: up to 4 weeks ]This is a quality of life scale specifically for patients experiencing radiation-induced PPE
- Activities of daily living [ Time Frame: up to 4 weeks ]Activities of daily living will be assessed with the Eastern Co-operative Oncology Group (ECOG)/WHO system
- Treatment side-effects [ Time Frame: up to 4 weeks ]Any possible side-effect due to the treatment will be recorded
