Oral mucositis is an acute inflammation and ulceration of the surface of the mouth and throat. Oral mucositis is a common complication in patients receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy. It is a painful condition that can significantly affect patients' nutrition, daily functioning and quality of life.2
Oral Mucositis Fact Sheet
Gelclair is a viscous oral gel for the management and relief of pain associated with oral mucositis due to radiation/chemotherapy.1
Gelclair exerts a mechanical action that provides rapid pain relief by adhering to the mucosal surface of the mouth, and by preventing over-stimulation of exposed and sensitised nerve endings within the mucosa.1
When Gelclair is rinsed around the mouth, it creates a barrier over the oral mucosa. This barrier can reduce pain and enable patients to eat and drink more easily, as it shields the nerve endings underneath.1
