Ability of HA to reduce the onset of side effects due to radiotherapy

Clinical Evaluation of Low-Molecular-Weight Hyaluronic Acid-Based Treatment on Onset of Acute Side Effects in Women Receiving Adjuvant Radiotherapy after Cervical Surgery: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Article specifications

This clinical trial was published in 2019 in Journal of Oncology Research and Treatment (IF 2018: 1.08) by Italian specialists. The aim of this work was to evaluate the ability of HA to reduce the onset of side effects due to radiotherapy. 180 women undergoing radiotherapy were randomized into two arms: controls and those treated with vaginal suppositories containing low-molecular-weight HA from day 1 of radiotherapy.



HA was able to help vaginal mucosa healing during radiotherapy in patients with cervical cancer (CC).
