The Japanese Herbal Medicine Hangeshashinto Induces Oral Keratinocyte Migration by Mediating the Expression of CXCL12 Through the Activation of Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinase.

Front Pharmacol 2021 18;12:695039. Epub 2022 Jan 18.

Department of Pain Control Research, The Jikei University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Several clinical studies have reported that Japanese herbal medicine Hangeshashinto (HST) has beneficial effects on chemotherapy-induced oral ulcerative mucositis (OUM). Our previous research demonstrated that HST improves chemotherapy-induced OUM through human oral keratinocyte (HOK) migration, which was suppressed by mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and C-X-C chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) inhibitors. However, the association between these molecules and HOK migration was unclear. Read More

NO, way to go: critical amino acids to replenish nitric oxide production in treating mucositis.

Curr Opin Support Palliat Care 2021 09;15(3):188-196

Department of Hematology, Radboud University Medical Centre, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Purpose Of Review: There is still an unmet need for preventive and treatment strategies for chemotherapy-induced and radiotherapy-induced mucositis and its associated systemic inflammatory response (SIR) in cancer patients. Because of citrulline depletion due to cytotoxic therapy, nitric oxide (NO) production can be reduced, limiting its effect in many physiological processes. Restoring NO production could relieve mucositis severity by supporting host damage control mechanisms. Read More
