Hangeshashinto is used in Japan to treat gastritis, stomatitis, and inflammatory diarrhea and has been studied in patients with cancer as a treatment for chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis.

Hand Hygiene With Alcohol Sanitizer

The use of an alcohol sanitizer for hand hygiene was examined in terms of effectiveness in prevention of infection. Hand hygiene has been identified as a key factor in infection prevention by care providers and is a component of patient and informal caregiver education in prevention of infection for at-risk patients with cancer.


Haloperidol is an antipsychotic. It works by decreasing excitement in the brain as a dopamine antagonist. Haloperidol also is used to control motor and verbal tics in adults and children who have Tourette syndrome. In addition, haloperidol is used to treat severe behavioral problems, such as explosive, aggressive behavior or hyperactivity in children who cannot be treated with psychotherapy or other medications.

Grape Juice

Juice from grapes is rich in flavonoids, which have antioxidant properties and act as scavengers of free radicals. This may inhibit related damage to cells. The effect of grape juice ingestion as an adjunct to antiemetics was tested in patients with cancer for management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). Flavonoids were hypothesized to reduce the severity of chemotherapy-related cell damage, thereby reducing one of the possible stimuli for CINV.

Granulocyte Transfusions

Granulocytes, a type of white blood cell, may be obtained from donors via apheresis or from the separation of component parts of standard blood donation.  Granulocyte transfusion is the administration of ABO matched granulocytes.  Granulocyte transfusion has been examined in patients with cancer, particularly those undergoing hematopoietic cell transplantation, for the prevention or treatment of infection.

Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone Agonists

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone is a female sex hormone that increases estrogen production. Agonists to this hormone, including recombinant gonadotropin-releasing hormone and leuprolide, decrease estrogen production to induce a therapeutic amenorrhea. This approach has been evaluated in women undergoing severe myelosuppressive therapy to prevent excessive bleeding from menstrual periods.
