A Mouse Model for Oral Mucositis Induced by Cancer Chemotherapy.

Summary of "A Mouse Model for Oral Mucositis Induced by Cancer Chemotherapy."

Oral mucositis (OM), one of the side-effects induced by chemotherapy, has 40% incidence and the incidence rate increases to approximately 100% in combination with radiotherapy. We describe OM in ICR mice induced using 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and 20% acetic acid.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

FEVER accompanied by a significant reduction in NEUTROPHIL count associated with CHEMOTHERAPY.

A syndrome characterized by inflammation in the ILEUM, the CECUM, and the ASCENDING COLON. It is observed in cancer patients with CHEMOTHERAPY-induced NEUTROPENIA or in other immunocompromised individuals (IMMUNOCOMPROMISED HOST).

An INFLAMMATION of the MUCOSA with burning or tingling sensation. It is characterized by atrophy of the squamous EPITHELIUM, vascular damage, inflammatory infiltration, and ulceration. It usually occurs at the mucous lining of the MOUTH, the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT or the airway due to chemical irritations, CHEMOTHERAPY, or radiation therapy (RADIOTHERAPY).

A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.

An inbred strain of mouse that is used as a general purpose research strain, for therapeutic drug testing, and for the genetic analysis of CARCINOGEN-induced COLON CANCER.
