Full Title

Tibetree Pain Relieving Plaster for Musculoskeletal Pain Among Cancer Survivors

Purpose

Some people who have been treated for cancer experience pain in the muscles and joints. In this study, researchers are assessing an herbal patch to see if it can help relieve this discomfort. The herbs in the patch may reduce the inflammation caused by cancer and cancer treatments.

Patients in this study will be randomly assigned to receive either the herbal pain patch or a placebo patch. Researchers also want to determine if there are any factors that may predict the effectiveness of the patch in cancer survivors.

Eligibility

This study is for adult patients who completed cancer treatment at least one month before receiving the study treatment, have no evidence of cancer, and are experiencing moderate to severe muscle and/or joint pain.
