Exposure to toxic agents (anticancer drugs, alcohol, environmental and industrial pollutants …) is among the most frequent causes of peripheral nerve damage, requiring a multi-disciplinary collaboration for proper investigation and assessment. The Toxic Neuropathy Consortium was created as a Special Interest Group of the PNS at the 2018 Meeting in Baltimore. We aim at increasing the engagement of all the relevant stakeholders (basic researcher, physicians, nurses, patients, health organizations and agencies as well as pharmaceutical companies), in order to improve knowledge and find solutions to the medical and social problems related to toxic neuropathies. These goals will be realized by cooperation, supporting research, revising scientific evidence and clinical needs, training scientists and healthcare professionals, setting standards of care, creating new treatments, and facilitating clinical trials.
Mission: To increase and improve research and knowledge on toxic neuropathies in order to ameliorate the care and treatment of patients.
