Dry mouth can be a side effect of cancer treatments, since radiation can damage the salivary glands and impair the production of saliva.
US Dental and Craniofacial Surveys believe they can develop a way to repair and regenerate the salivary glands and resolve that problem once and for all. Dr. Matthew Hoffman leads the Institute's Matrix and Morphogenesis department and is senior researcher on this salivary gland regeneration project. He and his team of researchers are striving to identify cells, biological signals and other key factors for the development of embryonic salivary glands.

There are a number of new cancer drugs that are not always available in the public health system or for sale. Those who are undergoing testing or approval in Brazil must undergo clinical trials, involving volunteer participants. Clinical trials are tools for the advancement of medical knowledge. After obtaining or isolating a product that for some reason has been recognized as potentially active in the treatment of cancer, this substance must undergo a series of tests in the laboratory and in animals of experimentation to then be applied in humans and cancer patients, if preliminarily recognized as an effective and not overly toxic agent.
