|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Peripheral Neuropathy in Breast Cancer Patient||Dietary Supplement: Vitamin D Dietary Supplement: Vitamin B6 Dietary Supplement: Vitamin B12 Dietary Supplement: Omega-3 Fatty Acids||Phase 2|
Phase 2, Single Centre, Open-label 2 Arm Randomized Trial. The intervention group will receive a daily dose of Vitamin D, Omega-3-fatty acids, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12. The reference group will have usual care.
Dose of Nutraceuticals: Vitamin D 2000 IU oral once daily, Vitamin B6 100 mg oral once daily, Vitamin B12 100 mcg oral once daily, Omega-3 Fatty Acids 900 mg oral three times a day (600 mg EPA, 300 mg DHA)
Population: Breast Cancer patients undergoing either neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy with docetaxel.
106 participants in total will be needed with accrual being completed in hopefully 1 years' time. Study Investigators will screen the candidates for the study.

Reference group will receive usual care.
- Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy Assessment [ Time Frame: 12 months ]To determine if there is a reduction in either severity or incidence of CIPN in patients treated with docetaxel in the female breast cancer population by using a nutraceutical formulation of the investigators design.
- Delay in the onset of grade 1 or decrease in the severity of CIPN [ Time Frame: 12 months after initiation of chemotherapy ]
- Affect of Usage of Nutraceuticals on Response to treatment [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
- Association of specific SNPs to CIPN [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
- Association of SNPs and Therapeutic response [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
