Antioxidants and chemotherapy

According to a new animal study, certain antioxidants may decrease chemo-related brain fog or "chemo-brain" for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. But I have also heard that cancer patients are told NOT to take antioxidants while undergoing chemotherapy, for reasons pointed out in this Science Daily article. What can patients take to abate chemo side effects? WebMD reports on vitamin E and others.
