Supportive care of cancer patients with a self-applied photobiomodulation device: a case series
Purpose: Oral mucositis (OM) and prolonged wound healing are common side-effects of cancer treatments. Photobiomodulation (PBM), previously called low-level laser, is currently part of the official guideline for OM prevention. However, all the PBM protocols relate to office-based devices, operated by professional health caregivers, requiring frequent applications. In the following case series, we present our experience with a self-applied consumer home-use PBM device for supportive care.
