Oral Mucositis Care App
DARA BioSciences has developed Oral Mucositis Care, a Smartphone app designed to provide cancer patients information about Oral Mucositis and how to care for their mouth before, during and after cancer treatment. Oral Mucositis is a condition caused by chemotherapy and radiation and is characterized by redness, inflammation and ulcer like sores throughout the mouth and throat. Oral Mucositis can be extremely painful and may also lead to infection. The Oral Mucositis Care app provides information for patients to maintain good oral hygiene to help alleviate pain and discomfort. The app also contains links to various support groups and educational websites.
