Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Acute radiation skin toxicity is particularly problematic in breast irradiation and may limit a patient's ability to complete their treatment regime. A variety of topical treatments have been used with limited success to manage acute radiation skin toxicity. This project is a pilot evaluation of wheatgrass as a topical agent, drawing on its reported properties in healing chemical, heat and radiation burns.
