Oral mucositis (OM) is a common and debilitating toxicity induced by many chemotherapy (CT) regimens and by radiation to the head and neck. The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of SNX-1012 in decreasing the duration of Grade 2, 3, or 4 oral mucositis (OM) according to World Health Organization (WHO) criteria.

Condition Intervention Phase
Stomatitis Oral Mucositis Drug: SNX-1012 (meclocycline sulfosalicylate) Drug: placebo Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Masked, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of SNX-1012 in Reducing the Duration and Severity of Ulcerative Oral Mucositis in Patients Receiving Cytotoxic Chemotherapy for Breast or Lung Cancer
