Clinical Experiences With R1 And R2 for Prophylaxis Of Radiation Dermatitis In Cancer Patients
Acute radiation dermatitis (ARD) occurs in nearly 95 % of all patients receiving radiation therapy in the head and neck area. Currently, there are no evidence-based regimens for prophylaxis of radiation dermatitis
or any standardized treatment recommendations. “R1 and R2” is a novel lactokine-based Class I Medical Device consisting of R1, a water-based gel which offers intense hydration to the skin while providing cooling relief and protecting skin against irritation, and R2, a soothing and moisturising lotion which has high UVB and UVA defense.
Our case series reveals that the application of R1 and R2 is feasible, safe and effective for prophylaxis and for treatment of acute radiation dermatitis. Patients do much better during radiation. They have a better quality of life.
Attached are further studies into the effectiveness of R1 & R2 as a treatment for skin during and after radiotherapy treatment. The documents are in PDF format.
