Brief description Mucositis is a debilitating side effect of cancer treatment, which is currently not treatable or preventable, due to a lack of understanding of how mucositis develops. Previous research has shown that microbes are involved in the development of mucositis in animal models. This project will determine if bacteria in the mouth and intestine play a role in the development of mucositis in patients, and if changes are easily detected, to allow for a more 'personalised' approach to manage mucositis.
