Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neurotoxicity represents one of the most relevant dose-limiting side effects that can affect cancer patients treated with the common antineoplastic agents. Since the severity of neurotoxicity often leads to dose reduction or early cessation of chemotherapy, the investigation of molecular mechanisms underlying chemotherapy-induced peripheral neurotoxicity is an urgent clinical need in order to better understand its physiopathology and find effective strategies for neuroprotection. Several in vivo preclinical models of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neurotoxicity have been developed but a great variability in mouse strain, dose, route of administration of the drug, treatment schedule and assessment of neurotoxicity is observed between the different published studies making difficult the comparison and interpretation of their results. In many of these studies only behavioural tests are used as outcome measures, while possible neurophysiological and neuropathological changes are not evaluated. In this study, focused on experimental oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neurotoxicity, we reproduced and compared four mouse models with very different drug dose (low or high dose-intensity) and treatment schedules (short or long-term treatment), selected from the literature. Using a multimodal assessment based on behavioural, neurophysiological and neuropathological methods, we evidenced remarkable differences in the results obtained in the selected animal models. This work suggests the importance of a multimodal approach including extensive pathological investigation to confirm the behavioural results.
