The loss of salivary gland secretion may occur as a result of dehydration, anticholinergic medications, CT usually occurs after days, lasting daysand RT usually occurs after 3 to 4 weeks. These eating patterns may become habitual even after your treatment regimen has ended.

Folic Acid, Cancer Risk & Use During Chemotherapy

This means a blanket statement for all cancer patients is not the answer. Results from the prospective, multi-institutional, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical trial of MuGard for symptom control due to mucositis in chemoradiation-treated head and neck cancer. Charles Heidelbergerwho had earlier found that fluorine in fluoroacetic acid inhibited a vital enzyme, asked Robert Duschinsky and Robert Schnitzer at Hoffmann-La Roche to synthesize fluorouracil.

A recent CDC study discovered that half of supplement users who took supplements with more than mcg of folic acid exceeded 1, mcg per day of folic acid. Interrupting the action of this enzyme blocks synthesis of the pyrimidine thymidinewhich is a nucleoside required for DNA replication.

To prevent mucositis following RT, there is an innovative surgery that transposes the submandibular salivary gland out of the field of radiation, thus preserving most salivary function. Depending on which drugs and supplements you are taking, folic acid-deficiency anemia may not be anticipated by your health care team.

"On one side of the fence stand the oncologists who have used the chemotherapy drug methotrexate for decades as an antagonist to the B vitamin, folic acid, to slow cancer growth, with leucovorin (folinic acid) as the rescue agent to summon the patient back from near death, or the 'vital frontier'.
