The use of honey and bee products in the prevention and treatment of oral mucositis in cancer patients - A systematic review

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstract

Abstract

Chemo- and radiotherapy-induced oral mucositis can potentially cause reduced quality of life, treatment interruptions, decreased nutritional status and severe pain in cancer patients. Honey, propolis and royal jelly are proposed treatments for oral mucositis primarily due to their antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. The aim of this systematic review was to assess the effectiveness of honey and bee products in the prevention and treatment of oral mucositis in cancer patients.
