A preclinical step toward treating chronic dry mouth

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic researchers replicated chronic dry mouth from radiation damage in preclinical models, laying the foundation for stem cell research to regenerate salivary tissue after cancer. This discovery uses targeted X-radiation to mimic human injury and establish a lab model for testing cellular therapies for dry mouth. The study is published in Radiation Research. “The […]
