To the editor
I read with great interest the recent article by Barasch et al in a recent issue of your journal. The article is highly thought-provoking. Interestingly, the past few years have seen the emergence of a number of novel clinical applications of palifermin, in addition to its use in oral mucositis and graft versus host disease.
