Oral mucositis – a complication of cancer therapy
Oral mucositis (OM) is one of the most common and debilitating side effects of cancer treatments (Ref. 5). It affects nearly all head and neck cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy, up to 75% of patients undergoing chemotherapy, and up to 100% of patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation (Ref. 5-9). Patients with oral mucositis are 6 times more likely to require reduced dosages of chemotherapy. OM also imparts a 4-fold increased risk of unplanned breaks in radiation therapy and a 3.4-fold risk of breaks or delays in chemotherapy (Ref. 10).
episil® oral liquid – for the management of oral mucositis pain
Clinical data demonstrate that episil® liquid, a treatment for the pain associated with oral mucositis, provides effective, and long-lasting pain relief by creating a bioadhesive, barrier-forming lipid membrane that coats the mouth (Ref. 12). Without producing a numbing effect, the product soothes painful ulcerations. episil® oral liquid does not require pre-mixing, it comes in a multidose pump device, and can be applied just before meals (Ref. 4).
