Study Design
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention
Name: ChiNing decoction
Type: Drug
Overall Status
This study evaluates the efficiency and safety of ChiNing decoction to head and neck cancer patients with radioactive stomatitis. Half of participants will receive ChiNing decoction, while others will receive recombinant human epidermal growth factor (rhEGF) spray.
Detailed Description
This study uses randomized, controlled clinical research methods, through the observation of the treatment group (ChiNing decoction orally) and control group (recombinant human epidermal growth factor rhEGF spray on oral mucosal surface ) at different time points before and after radiotherapy, to evaluate the radiotherapy of acute radiation oral mucosa reaction (RTOG grade), quality of life score (EORTCQLQ-H&N35 scale), oral pain (VAS score) and patient body weight changes of the two groups. At the same time,this study takes cast-off cells of oral mucosal to observe the microscopic characteristics of oral mucosa, and uses the ELISA method to detect IL-6 and TNF- alpha content in the saliva before and after radiotherapy.
