Patients who have been diagnosed with a head and/or neck cancer commonly develop oral mucositis (OM). The purpose of this study is to estimate the effect of Caphosol on OM and to evaluate if Caphosol had any effect on clinical outcomes which include quality of life, oral intake, swallowing function and pain.

Condition Intervention Phase
Oral Mucositis Device: Caphosol Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
Official Title: Caphosol for the Reduction of Mucositis in Patients Receiving Radiation Therapy for Head and Neck Cancer
