Study confirms SalivaMAX™ is safe & effective for the reduction of oral mucositis
Study confirms SalivaMAX™ is clinically proven as a safe and effective method for the reduction of oral mucositis
By: Forward Science
SalivaMAX, manufactured by Forward Science, is an FDA Cleared prescription rinse that is indicated for both xerostomia and mucositis. SalivaMAX is currently being used at some of the top cancer centers in the nation; however, Forward Science wanted to quantify the success of SalivaMAX for use in oncology. The control, a soda / salt rinse, was compared to a powered supersaturated calcium phosphate rinse (SSCPR), SalivaMAX. "Not only has SalivaMAX reduced the severity of oral mucositis, it has pushed back the onset by almost one week" reported one of the Oncology Clinicians during the study. The retrospective study published in the Journal of Cancer Therapy demonstrated that the powdered supersaturated calcium phosphate rinse was a statistically significant more effective method of oral mucositis mitigation than the standard of care.
"All of us at Forward Science are proud of the results that SalivaMAX brings patients." explains Brian Pikkula, PhD, President and Co-Founder of Forward Science. "We think it's especially important to inform the clinical community of the efficacy of SalivaMAX (a SSCPR), and really, there's no better way than a study published in a peer reviewed journal. We hope this data will help turn the tide so that SalivaMAX is recognized as the standard of care in oncology centers." With continued evidence that SalivaMAX is an effective method to treat both xerostomia and mucositis, Forward Science will strive to further to educate clinicians that SalivaMAX should replace soda / salt rinses as the standard of care for oral mucositis treatment.
