A promising treatment for dry mouth is in the pipeline
Dr. Papas ended her presentation with encouraging news about her work with Dr. Howard Green, at Harvard Medical School, who had developed artificial skin for severely burned patients. They have conceived a treatment plan for a moisturizing agent that would be delivered by way of a mucoadhesive film (attached to the mucosa) into the oral cavity. They have asked the Forsyth Institute in Cambridge, MA to help them create this product, and it has shown an interest in it.
