Trials

 

Researchers at the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research are investigating a new treatment for dry mouth.

The study is recruiting participants who are:
* Adults ages 18 and older
* Previously diagnosed with a cancer of the head and neck
* Experiencing dry mouth caused by radiation therapy
* Cancer-free (5 or more years)
* Not pregnant or breast feeding
* Non-smoker

This treatment involves the insertion of a gene into the remaining cells of the salivary gland. Research in animals has shown that this treatment can increase saliva flow for a short period of time with very few side effects.

More information about this study may be found at ClinicalTrials.gov.
http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00372320 or at a patient focused website: www.drymouthstudy.com .

Additional details can be obtained by contacting Dr. Bruce Baum at bbaum@dir.nidcr.nih.gov or Linda McCullagh MPH, RN at mccullaghl@nidcr.nih.gov .
