Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Oral Defense Toothpaste causes accelerated healing of chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis.


Study summary:

A pilot study showed that patients with chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis experienced accelerated healing of their oral mucositis by brushing with Oral Defense Toothpaste. In this study, participants experiencing up to grade 2 chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis will be split into two arms. The first arm (test arm) will receive Oral Defense Toothpaste and be required to brush three times per day, for 8 days. The second arm (control arm) will receive Crest Toothpaste and be required to brush three times per day, for 8 days. Patients in the control arm will be provided Magic Mouth Rinse, if needed. Healing of oral mucositis lesions will be evaluated at days 1 and 8. Quality of life assessment (determination of pain/loss of oral function) will be determined using a daily questionnaire.

Inclusion Criteria: - Patients over the age of 18 receiving chemotherapy - Mucositis lesions not exceeding grade 2 Exclusion Criteria: - Patients receiving high load chemotherapy - Patients receiving radiation therapy - Patients receiving oral antivirals, oral antifungals or oral antibacterials - Patients experiencing oral candidiasis
