What is Gelclair®?

Gelclair® is a viscous gel specially formulated to aid in the management of lesions of the oral mucosa. It forms a protective film that, by coating and sticking to the lining of the mouth and throat, offers rapid and effective pain management.

Gelclair® comes as a concentrated gel in sachets for dilution with water.

How can
Gelclair® help?

Gelclair® provides a simple, highly effective way to relieve the pain of oral mucositis and painful mouth ulcers − helping to maintain normal dietary/fluid intake and supporting completion of full-dose therapy.

  • Gelclair® contains PVP (polyvinylpyrrolidone) and sodium hyaluronate in a liquid gel.
  • When applied around the mouth, Gelclair® forms a protective coating that adheres to the lining of the mouth.
  • The coating offers rapid and effective pain management.
  • Pain is significantly reduced following the first use of Gelclair®.
  • Gelclair® can potentially improve the ability to eat and drink and, unlike preparations with an alcohol or anaesthetic base, should not sting.
