Research: Genetically Engineered Protein Reduces Radiation-Induced Oral Mucositis

Posted on October 9, 2013

Researchers at the University of Colorado Cancer Center in Denver genetically engineered a protein called Smad7 in the surface layers of tissue in the oral cavity that reduces the incidence of radiation-induced oral mucositis.

The complete study may be found in the journal Nature Medicine, www.nature.com/nm/index.html.
