Figure 2: Radio/chemotherapy changes the immunoinflammatory response and puts the patient at risk for progression of periodontal disease (immunosuppression) and has cytotoxic effect on the oral mucosa cells. The progression of periodontal disease and oral mucositis includes increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines and induces bacteremia triggering a new cycle of upregulation
