Spanish scientists develop a pioneering technique to effectively treat mucositis
Date:2/14/2013

s of melatonin at the University of Granada, which has shown that mitochondrial damage is present in cases of mucositis. "Melatonin alleviates the inflammatory reaction and protects the mitochondria, says Germaine Escames Rosa, the principal author of the study, "and for this reason we think it could be useful for treating mucositis."

The success of the treatment developed at the University of Granada is due to the type of gel used in the pharmaceutical formulation, and the amount of melatonin used. "The oral application of this melatonin gel at a specific concentration, impregnates the mucous membranes and reverses the mitochondrial damage, preventing the appearance of mucositis in 100% of cases." Any other type of melatonin application, such as different concentrations, would not have the same effect.

National Patent

Via the University of Granada Research Results Transfer Office, the product has already been patented at national level, and an international patent has also been applied for.

In addition, the microbiological and stability tests that are required in order to apply for registration as a health product are currently being undertaken, while the research team are involved in preparing for its launch as a commercial product. The studies undertaken for the manufacture of this gel have been financed by CEI BioTic of Granada and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
