Developed using the award-winning* Camurus proprietary technology FluidCrystal® , episil® is administered as a lipid-based liquid that spreads on the intra-oral mucosal surfaces and transforms to a strongly bioadhesive film that mechanically protects the sensitized and sore epithelium of the oral cavity. Clinically demonstrated, episil® has been shown to rapidly (within minutes) and effectively reduce oral pain for up to 8 hours. episil® oral liquid is the only product for oral mucositis that is supplied as a ready-to-use, pocket-sized device helping patients maintain their quality of life while undergoing cancer therapy. episil® was first launched in Europe and is today commercially available in a number of countries, including the US. episil® oral liquid is a CE-marked medical device class 1 in Europe and a 510k registered medical device in the US.
