Chemotherapy-induced mucositis is considered to be a major oncological problem, caused by the cytotoxic effects of cancer chemotherapy. In the last 10 years, there have been significant advances in the understanding of mucositis pathobiology. At the basic level, it is now well-understood that it is not just an epithelial process, but rather a complex interaction between epithelial and connective tissue compartments.
