Summary of "Oral Care Evaluation to Prevent Oral Mucositis in Estrogen Receptor-Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients Treated with Everolimus (Oral Care-BC): A Randomized Controlled Phase III Trial."

The incidence of oral mucositis (any grade) after everolimus treatment is 58% in the general population and 81% in Asian patients. This study hypothesized that professional oral care (POC) before everolimus treatment could reduce the incidence of everolimus-induced oral mucositis.
