  • NTCP
  • Due to strong reliance on patient-specific, dose-independent factors, our results underscore the need for development of personalized data-driven risk profiles for NTCP models of xerostomia. (frontiersin.org)
  • Salivary excretion factors (SEFs) measured by scintigraphy and QoL data from self-reported questionnaires were used for NTCP modeling to describe the incidence of grade 3+ xerostomia. (biomedsearch.com)
  • minimize
  • She was temporarily changed from simvastatin to atorvastatin due to persistently high LDL cholesterol and the high risk of both CVD and PVD associated with high lipoprotein A. atorvastatin was also stopped for 4 weeks and it substantially did help to minimize her xerostomia.

  • medications
  • Xerostomia, xerogenic medications and food avoidances in selected geriatric groups. (springer.com)
  • Prescription or nonprescription medications, specifically those for high blood pressure, clinical depression, colds as well as allergic reactions are the major variables that bring about xerostomia. (clipmovie.org)
  • Treatment
  • This indicates that studies underestimate its true prevalence in statin treatment therefore more studies are required on the association between statins and xerostomia. (endocrine-abstracts.org)
  • This study is being done to find out what effects, good and/or bad, acupuncture has on participants and their xerostomia caused by radiation therapy for the treatment of the cancer. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The rate of grade 3+ xerostomia for treatment plans meeting the QUANTEC guidelines was specifically predicted, with a NPV of 100%, using either the QoL or SEF dataset. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Management and treatment of xerostomia first needs to include the identification of the xerostomic condition and the cause. (dental--health.com)
  • mean dose
  • Based on these results, we believe that the QUANTEC 25/20-Gy spared-gland mean-dose guidelines are clinically useful for avoiding xerostomia in the HN cohort. (biomedsearch.com)
  • oral
  • Since ancient times, our mouth has proven to be a mirror of our health and it is said that if it is healthy, it is more likely that our entire body is healthy, so understanding xerostomia becomes really important as it involves the oral cavity which is also the main gateway of food from which we generate energy.

  • Studies show that xerostomia is the most common oral side-effect of cardiovascular medication. (endocrine-abstracts.org)
  • Also yeast infections (oral candidiasis) are very common oral infections associated with xerostomia. (dental--health.com)
