Product Description

Oral mucositis represents a common side effect of chemotherapy (CHT) and radiotherapy (RT). It consists in a painful erythema involving the oral cavity mucosa, which may progress to ulceration. Benzydamine is a local anti-inflammatory drug with analgesic properties. It can decrease TNF-α, IL-1β and prostaglandin synthesis, also inhibiting leukocyte-endothelial interactions, neutrophil degranulation, vasodilation and vascular permeability. Literature agrees on the beneficial effects of benzydamine in preventing and reducing oral mucositis severity in H&N cancer patients undergoing RT/CHT. It is meant for mouth rinse or gargle only. Spit the rinse out after use, do not swallow it. It should generally be used undiluted. Mucobenz contains no alcohol, causes no staining of teeth, causes no burning sensation and no further dryness of mouth.
