Chemo Mouthpiece

Brief Summary:
This study will compare the use of Chemo Mouthpiece TM along with best oral supportive care to best oral supportive care only in preventing and easing symptoms of chemotherapy related oral mucositis. Patients who are receiving protocol specified chemotherapy regimens will be randomly assigned to receive either study device and oral care ingredients or oral care ingredients only. All patients will complete daily questionnaires for the first 14 days of Cycles 1 and 2 of chemotherapy. Patients who are assigned to the study device will use the device during their chemotherapy infusion as well as at least twice a day at home for the first 7 days of Cycles 1 and 2 of chemotherapy. At the beginning of Cycle 3, patients that were not assigned to the study device will be given the option to receive study device for the remainder of their treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence of oral mucositis symptomatic events observed during the first cycle of chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    The presence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms will be measured by patient self-report using the Oral Mucositis Symptom Assessment scale with positive symptoms defined as a score of 1 or greater and severe symptoms defined as a score of 2 or greater.

  2. The incidence of oral mucositis symptomatic events observed during the second cycle of chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Cycle 2 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    The presence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms will be measured by patient self-report using the Oral Mucositis Symptom Assessment scale with positive symptoms defined as a score of 1 or greater and severe symptoms defined as a score of 2 or greater.

  3. The incidence of severe oral mucositis symptomatic events observed during the first cycle of chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    The presence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms will be measured by patient self-report using the Oral Mucositis Symptom Assessment scale with positive symptoms defined as a score of 1 or greater and severe symptoms defined as a score of 2 or greater.

  4. The incidence of severe oral mucositis symptomatic events observed during the second cycle of chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Cycle 2 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    The presence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms will be measured by patient self-report using the Oral Mucositis Symptom Assessment scale with positive symptoms defined as a score of 1 or greater and severe symptoms defined as a score of 2 or greater.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms per chemotherapy cycle [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    • The presence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms will be measured by patient self-report using the Oral Mucositis Symptom Assessment scale with positive symptoms defined as a score of 1 or greater and severe symptoms defined as a score of 2 or greater.

  2. Incidence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms per chemotherapy cycle [ Time Frame: Cycle 2 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    • The presence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms will be measured by patient self-report using the Oral Mucositis Symptom Assessment scale with positive symptoms defined as a score of 1 or greater and severe symptoms defined as a score of 2 or greater.

  3. Duration of oral mucositis symptoms [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    • The presence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms will be measured by patient self-report using the Oral Mucositis Symptom Assessment scale with positive symptoms defined as a score of 1 or greater and severe symptoms defined as a score of 2 or greater.

  4. Duration of oral mucositis symptoms [ Time Frame: Cycle 2 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    • The presence and severity of oral mucositis symptoms will be measured by patient self-report using the Oral Mucositis Symptom Assessment scale with positive symptoms defined as a score of 1 or greater and severe symptoms defined as a score of 2 or greater.

  5. Percent of days the Chemo MouthpieceTM was used [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    • Device use will be measured on a daily diary completed for at least the first 14 days of each cycle. The diary will also be completed on any additional days that the patient uses the device.

  6. Percent of days the Chemo MouthpieceTM was used [ Time Frame: Cycle 2 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    • Device use will be measured on a daily diary completed for at least the first 14 days of each cycle. The diary will also be completed on any additional days that the patient uses the device.

  7. Ease of use of the Chemo MouthpieceTM based on patient-reported Chemo Mouthpiece End of Study Device Assessment [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    patient-reported Chemo Mouthpiece End of Study Device Assessment

  8. Ease of use of the Chemo MouthpieceTM based on patient-reported Chemo Mouthpiece End of Study Device Assessment [ Time Frame: Cycle 2 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    patient-reported Chemo Mouthpiece End of Study Device Assessment

  9. Analgesic use to control mouth pain [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 of chemotherapy (14-28 days, time frame varies based on regimen) ]
    Device use will be measured on a daily diary completed for at least the first 14 days of each cycle. The diary will also be completed on any additional days that the patient uses the device.
