Mission and Goals

The Mucositis Study Group’s major goal is to improve outcomes of patients experiencing oral and gastrointestinal mucositis associated with anticancer therapies. This study group works closely with the International Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO). Our objectives are to improve the design and conduct of clinical investigations, disseminate up-to-date educational information regarding mucositis, and serve as a resource for investigators in basic science, clinical, and health services research, as well as for industrial collaborators, clinicians, and patients.
