Abstract

The treatment of cancer is concomitant with complementary pain and adverse effects, and one such incapacitating effect is oral mucositis, addressed by Shu et al., who aim to assess the effects of probiotics in addressing the aftermaths of cancer therapy [1]. The information gained from this study shows significant clinical utility in the prevention and treatment of cancer therapy-induced oral mucositis and can serve to help manage patient pain and quality of life.
