Could antioxidants actually enhance chemotherapy outcomes?

my own research table for natural compounds that support  standard of care  treatments

Artemisinin is technically the only compound in my table that is NOT considered and antioxidant.
The number 1's are direct links to the research for enhancing each treatment with that particular compound.

Nowadays, we all have comprehensive data at our fingertips that we can turn to when someone strongly suggests that we should stop all the antioxidants during chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Instead of agreeing out of fear of upsetting the person who appears to be in the know, we really need to take responsibility and look at each supplement carefully and make the best decision for our survival at the time.

There is simply no longer a one size fits all when it comes to chemotherapy or when it comes to evaluating the use of compounds we call "antioxidants". For example, although EGCG from green tea has both antioxidant and pro-oxidant properties, its pro-oxidant activity has been postulated to be primarily responsible for its anti-cancer effects (ref).
