The aim of the study was to determine the effect of a lactoperoxidase--hypothiocyanate enzyme system on the subjective complaints and symptoms of patients suffering from "dry mouth syndrome" with diseases of the oral mucosa. The objective changes in the oral microbiological flora and cytological pattern were also assessed. The lactoperoxidase-enzyme system-containing products--like Oralbalance gel (in combination with Biotène toothpaste)--seems to be a useful tool of choice for symptomatic therapy in patients, complaining of "dry mouth syndrome".
