What is Oral Mucositis?

Oral mucositis is a painful inflammation 
of the lining of the mouth and throat
(oral mucosa). It is extremely painful and debilitating for patients and has a serious impact on Quality of Life.2,3


Oral Mucositis and Cancer Therapy

Oral mucositis is one of the most common complications of radiation and chemotherapy cancer treatments, and can lead to debilitating consequences such as malnutrition, psychological symptoms, poor quality of life, infections, and interruption of therapy.3

I started using GelX after 1 cycle of chemotherapy. I had already started with a number of large mouth ulcers and was finding eating and swallowing painful. After just 2 days of using GelX, no further ulcers appeared. Throughout my chemo treatments I only had a handful of small ulcers. I can wholeheartedly say that GelX has made a significant difference to my oral comfort and enabled me to eat more normally than I could have done…A truly wonderful product!

Jayne, Patient, Wrexham

I was kindly sent GelX at the beginning of my throat cancer journey. During treatment this was a fantastic product that enabled me to have a life. Eating, drinking, smiling - GelX played a big part. I would 100% fully recommend this product to anybody without hesitation.

Jon, Patient, Surrey

I support patients with Head and Neck cancers and have found, since the introduction of GelX during radiotherapy (with or without chemotherapy), mucositis is reduced. This has meant for some patients, stronger analgesics have not been necessary or at least not required so early on during their course of radiotherapy. We find using GelX prophylactically in Head and Neck cancer patients, receiving radiotherapy, helps reduce the severity of mucositis.

We have been using GelX for about a year now. Mucositis has been improved in patients who use it consistently from the beginning of treatment.
