Abstract:  Several oral rinses are commercially available to alleviate the symptoms of oral mucositis. Prolonged retention of active pharmaceutical ingredients in the oral cavity is a major problem. In this study, we modified the Stanford oral rinse by including a proprietary mucoadhesive polymer called MucoLox, which we hypothesized would improve active pharmaceutical ingredient mucoadhesion. Characterization of this newly compounded oral rinse showed absence of cytotoxicity in human oral keratinocyte and fibroblast cell lines. The compounded formulation significantly stimulated the migration of these two cell lines in Oris Cell Migration Assay plates, better than the reference commercial product Magic mouthwash. Based on this in vitro study, the new Stanford modified oral rinse with MucoLox is safe and may promote healing of oral mucositis.
