Answer

Many other modalities have been reported to have variable response rates in small studies. These include latanoprost, [45] nitrogen mustard, massage and relaxation, isoprinosine, acupuncture, and aromatherapy, among others. The efficacy of these treatments needs to be demonstrated in larger, placebo-controlled trials before they can be recommended.
