Previously, Nutri-jelly, a novel edible nutritious gel for patients with chewing and swallowing difficulties, was shown to be effective in improving the quality of life of head and neck cancer patients. Recently, Nutri-PEITC jelly is recently developed by addition of Phenethyl Isothiocyanate (PEITC), a phytochemical compound with chemopreventive action in animal bearing oral cancer. It intends to be a functional food for cancer survivor. The dose of PEITC in Nutri-jelly was based on safe and effective dose determined in animal studies. Furthermore, Nutri-PEITC jelly was proven safe in healthy volunteers who daily consumes for a consecutive month with no serious adverse events. The purpose of this study is to determine safety and efficacy of Nutri-jelly with PEITC in head and neck cancer patients.
independent variable: continuous Nutri -jelly with PEITC intake dependent variable (outcome): adverse effects, health-related quality of life score, tumor response and functional status

Experimental: Nutri-jelly with PEITC
Continuous intake of Nutri-jelly with PEITC for 200 milligrams per day, five days per week for 3 months.
Dietary Supplement: Nutri-jelly with PEITC
Nutri-jelly with PEITC resulted from an addition of tested amount of PEITC, which was shown in animal model to delay cancer growth, into Nutri-jelly.
Placebo Comparator: Nutri-jelly
Continuous intake of Nutri-jelly for 200 milligrams per day, five days per week for 3 months.
Dietary Supplement: Nutri-jelly
Nutri-jelly is an edible nutritious gel for patients with chewing and swallowing difficulties. One milligram of Nutri-jelly contains approximately 1 kcal.
