Abstract

The aim of this study was to study the effect of vitamin "E" in the treatment of oral mucositis.

80 patients with oral mucositis were randomly distributed into 2 groups: group A, topically applied vitamin "E" and group B, vitamin "E" was given systemically.

The 2 groups were evaluated for 5 days.

Results showed that in group A grades of oral mucositis improved significantly, while in group B no significant improvement was noticed.

It is concluded that topical application of 100 mg vitamin "E" twice daily is an effective measure for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis.
