- Brief summaryBackground of the study:
Alopecia, hair loss, is a common and distressing side effect of chemotherapy. Scalp cooling is practiced in order to reduce hair loss in patients receiving chemotherapy. In the literature methods and results of scalp cooling vary remarkably. However, in general, positive outcomes are reported and scalp cooling is well tolerated by most patients. Although scalp cooling has been practiced for many years, several essential questions still have to be answered. One remaining question is the optimal post-infusion cooling time. Previous research showed comparable results of scalp cooling with post-infusion cooling times of 90 and 45 minutes in patients treated with docetaxel in a 3-weekly schedule. Maybe an even shorter post-infusion cooling time is sufficient to keep the good results, which would be an advantage in time investment for the patient, but also for the day care unit.

Objective of the study:
Determination of differences in results of scalp cooling with post-infusion cooling times of 45 versus 20 minutes in 3-weekly docetaxel schedules.

Study design:
This is a prospective multicentric trial. Patients will be randomly assigned to a post-infusion cooling time of 45 versus 20 minutes.

Study population:
Patients treated with 3-weekly docetaxel chemotherapy and who choose for scalp cooling. Both randomisation arms will include 50 patients.

Intervention:
Randomisation between 45 and 20 minutes post-infusion cooling times. Patients will complete a questionnaire during each scalp cooling session.

Primary study parameters/outcome of the study:
The primary study parameter is the proportion of patients that needs a wig or head cover after termination of scalp cooling.

Secundary study parameters/outcome of the study:
Secundary parameters are related to liver and kidney disorders, impact of other chemotherapies or hormonal therapy, the amount and pattern of hair loss, quality of the hair during scalp cooling and reasons to stop scalp cooling.
