TREATING ORAL MUCOSITIS WITH LASER THERAPY

Laser therapy and oral mucositis Laser therapy for painful side effect of chemotherapy Oral Mucositis (OM) is a very painful side effect of chemotherapy. Patients who have received high doses of chemotherapy, either alone or in combination with total body radiation, often cite OM as the most debilitating side effect. Prior studies have shown that laser therapy can treat OM and provide significant relief and speed healing. However, no study has looked at trying to prevent OM before it begins. The researchers studied 42 patients who underwent stem cell transplant with radiation and chemotherapy. In the  laser therapy group, 57.1% of patients had no pain when they received  laser therapy prior to treatment, whereas in the control group, only 4.8% of patients were free of pain! The results demonstrate that laser therapy can not only heal this serious problem, it can even prevent it!
