Abstract

Chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis can result in inadequate oral intake, local and systemic infection, a prolonged hospital stay, and increased cost of treatment. Treatment of the pain resulting from this condition can greatly lessen these problems. Hydroxypropyl cellulose gel with benzocaine (Zilactin B) has been shown to effectively reduce the pain of mucositis for up to 3 hours.
