About Oral Mucositis

Oral mucositis is a painful condition often experienced by patients undergoing radiation or chemotherapy for cancer or bone marrow transplant. It is an inflammation and ulceration of the mucous membranes in the mouth and throat.

Dr. Murali Rajaraman, Chair of the Atlantic Canada Radiation Medicine Council (ACRM) and Associate Professor at Dalhousie University’s Department of Radiation Oncology, stated that “Oral mucositis is an important problem that can result in severe mouth pain making it difficult to eat, drink, swallow and, in some cases, even speak. It can significantly affect a cancer patient’s quality of life and may lead that patient to delay or stop their cancer treatment. The prevention and management of oral mucositis remains a significant challenge for patients and their healthcare providers. It will be beneficial to have another product option available to patients to better manage oral mucositis.”

About Gelclair®

Gelclair® is a protectve gel that is indicated for the rapid relief of the painful symptoms of oral mucositis. It forms a barrier that adheres to the mucosa of the mouth, protecting and hydrating damaged tissue, shielding the exposed nerves from painful stimuli while eating and drinking, and thereby providing patients with fast pain relief.

Clinical studies have shown that Gelclair® provides fast acting pain relief, supports healing, and improves the ability of patients suffering from oral mucositis to eat, drink, swallow and speak. Studies have also reported a decreased need for analgesics or opioids to reduce the pain of oral mucositis, as well as reductions in the grade of severity of oral mucositis with the use of Gelclair®. Gelclair® has demonstrated significantly better patient tolerability and acceptance than the standards of care it was compared to, helping patients to continue with their cancer treatments. Gelclair® has no known pharmaceutical interactions and only rare, non-serious, reversible adverse events have been reported. Gelclair® has demonstrated its safety and efficacy in helping to protect cancer patients from the severe pain associated with oral mucositis caused by radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
