Int J Mol Sci 2022 Apr 26;23(9). Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Department of Physiology and Pathophysiology, Basic Medical College, Capital Medical University, Beijing 100069, China.

With the development of psychology and medicine, more and more diseases have found their psychological origins and associations, especially ulceration and other mucosal injuries, within the digestive system. However, the association of psychological factors with lesions of the oral mucosa, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), burning mouth syndrome (BMS), and recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS), have not been fully characterized. In this review, after introducing the association between psychological and nervous factors and diseases, we provide detailed descriptions of the psychology and nerve fibers involved in the pathology of OSCC, BMS, and RAS, pointing out the underlying mechanisms and suggesting the clinical indications.

Delineation of Oral Mucosa as a Pseudo-Organ-at-Risk May Lead to a Decrease in the Incidence of Oral Mucositis: A Dosimetric Analysis of Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy Plans in Head and Neck Cancers.

Cureus 2022 Mar 31;14(3):e23716. Epub 2022 Mar 31.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Shri Ram Murti Smarak Institute of Medical Sciences, Bareilly, IND.

Introduction Oral mucositis is a common and potentially serious complication of radiation in head and neck cancer treatment. Severe mucositis causes pain, difficulty in chewing and swallowing that can cause treatment breaks and can cause treatment failures leading to local recurrence or a decrease in overall survival. The contouring of the planning target volume (PTV) and organ at risk (OAR) leaves some undefined regions on computed tomography imaging. Read More
