Aloe vera may have a potential effect in reducing the oral mucositis in patients with head and neck cancer, some scientists suggested.
Head and neck cancer is a class of cancers that start in the mouth, throat, larynx, sinuses, or salivary glands.
The herbal mouthwash also reduced oral candidiasis of patients undergoing head and neck radiotherapy due to its antifungal and immunomodulatory properties.
The trial included 26 eligible head and neck cancer patients who were to receive conventional radiation therapy at the radiation oncology department were randomized to receive an Aloe vera mouthwash or a benzydamine mouthwash.
No difference in the distribution of mucositis severity between the two groups, at the baseline.
The mean interval between the start of radiation therapy and the maximum severity of mucositis were was also similar in both the Aloe vera and benzydamine groups (Aloe vera 23.38±10.75 days, benzydamine 23.54±15.45 days).
