Clinical Trial Summary

Effect of Probiotics on Raditon Enteritis in Pelvic Tumor Patients Receiving Radiotherapy.


Clinical Trial Description

Radiation-induced enteritis is an common and severe side effect of the patients undergoing pelvic radiotherapy. It can lead to dose-limiting and debilitating treatment effect. There is no guideline on an acknowledged intervention that significantly reduces its severity. In previous study, we have abserved that a probiotic combination significantly enhances the immune response of patients and reduces the severity of oral mucositis through modification of gut microbiota. In this stuyd we plan to designe a randomized trial of Probiotics probiotics in patients with pelvic carcinoma.The aim of this study is to determine if regulating intestinal tract flora will reduce the severity of radiation-induced mucositis in patients receiving pelvic radiotherapy. The effect of this intervention on a patient's general well-being was also investigated. The primary end-point of the study was the incidence of grade 3 enteritis. In 2021, 40 patients are estimated to be recruited into the study in Jiangxi Cancer Hospitals, China. 20 patients were randomized to receive Probiotics or placebo during chemoradiotherapy respectively. ;
