Introduction: Chemotherapy, adjuvant, neoadjuvant or palliative, is an integral part of the management of solid tumors, depending on stage. Bone marrow suppression (toxicity) and the resultant leucocytopenia is a known complication for majority. Haemopoietic growth factors like filgrastim is hence given either along with chemotherapy in high dose schedule or once the leucopenia sets in to prevent chemo toxicity and eventual death. A repeated admission to manage chemo toxicity also adds to the cost and reduces quality of life. Dietary modifications have been in vogue for patients receiving chemotherapy for better digestion and energy. Administering a food product as dietary intervention to perform as a haemopoietic growth factor is a novel concept in Oncology and reported for the first time.
