OraCoat ® XyliMelts® Reduce Dry Mouth for Oral Cancer Patients
All-Natural Dry Mouth Remedy Can Help Reduce Xerostomia in Oral Cancer Patients Undergoing Chemo and Radiation Therapy TreatmentsBellevue, WA (March 6, 2017) –OraCoat®XyliMelts® help oral cancer patients suffering from dry mouth as a result of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.Xerostomia, more commonly known as dry mouth, is the subjective sensation of dryness experienced when an insufficient amount of saliva is produced. While mild or occasional oral dryness occurring especially during sleep is considered normal in healthy individuals, excessive ongoing dryness leads to, among other things, disturbed sleep, difficulty chewing and swallowing, tongue roughness, frequently drinking liquids at night, and rampant tooth decay.Dry mouth is exacerbated in cancer patients because chemotherapy or radiation treatments can impede salivary gland production, resulting in lower levels of saliva and increased symptoms of dry mouth. In some cases, this condition is only temporary and will dissipate after a few months once treatment has been completed and the salivary glands have had a chance to regenerate and begin functioning properly again. However, in some cases, the dry mouth becomes a chronic issue for those who received this treatment.XyliMeltsis a patented dry mouth product that sticks to the gums on the outside of a molar, releasing one-half gram of Xylitol, which stimulates saliva flow via a sweet flavor, reduces dry mouth, and may reduce the risk of tooth decay as...

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that MTC is a more immunologically active tumor that has been previously reported. Patients with advanced MTC should be screened for targetable antigens and immune checkpoints to determine their eligibility for current clinical trials. Additional studies are necessary to fully characterize the antigenic potential of MTC and may encourage the development of adoptive T cells therapies for this rare tumor.

Dr. Matija Snuderl, neuropathologist and molecular pathologist at New York University Langone Health, was featured ina recent article appearing inNature (March 26, 2020, Vol 579, p S14-S16). The article, which addresses the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in cancer diagnostics, opens with Dr. Snuderl experiencing a moment that many of us neuropathologists have had wherein we hesitate before signing out a case because of a feeling that something might be just a bit different about a particular specimen. That feeling prompts us to do something else (run more ancillary testing, get a consult, sleep on it and ta...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...
