Preferred Name: Honey-containing Mouthwash

Definition: A mouthwash containing honey with potential antimucositis activity. Upon rinsing with this mouthwash, honey modulates the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines which may kill bacteria thus potentially preventing inflammation of the mucosal membranes and may decrease chemotherapy- and/or radiation-induced oral mucositis. In addition, honey may have a protective and healing effect on the oral mucosa.
