What is NeutraSal®?
NeutraSal® (supersaturated calcium phosphate rinse) is a prescription mouth rinse. NeutraSal® is indicated to treat the painful symptoms associated with oral mucositis. NeutraSal® should be started at the beginning of cancer therapy including chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
NeutraSal® is packaged in single use packets of dissolving powder, that when mixed in water, creates an oral rinse supersaturated with calcium and phosphate ions.
NeutraSal® does NOT contain sugar, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or any preservatives.
How does NeutraSal® work?
NeutraSal® is an advanced electrolyte solution that mimics natural saliva. NeutraSal® contains electrolytes such as calcium, phosphate, bicarbonate and chloride. These electrolytes are necessary for a healthy, functioning mouth. NeutraSal® is designed to replace the normal ionic and pH balance in the oral cavity (mouth).
Indications for Use:
- NeutraSal® is also indicated as an adjunct to standard oral care in relieving the discomfort associated with oral mucositis that may be caused by radiation or high dose chemotherapy. Relief of dryness of the oral mucosa in these conditions is associated with the amelioration of pain.
- NeutraSal® may be used for relief of dryness of the oral mucosa when hyposalivation results from the following: surgery, radiotherapy near the salivary glands, chemotherapy, infection or dysfunction of the salivary glands; emotional factors such as fear or anxiety; obstruction of the salivary glands; Sjogren's Syndrome.
- NeutraSal® is also indicated for the dryness of the mouth (hyposalivation, xerostomia).
- NeutraSal® is indicated for dryness of the oral mucosa due to drugs such as antihistamines, atropine, and other anticholinergic agents that suppress salivary secretion.
