Is there any alternate treatment for essential thrombocythemia?

ET: Hydroxyurea, anagrelide, and alpha-interferon are conventional therapies for essential thrombocythemia. Pipobroman is widely used in europe, but not available in the United States. Low-dose Aspirin is possibly effective in preventing thrombosis (clot formation) in et. Low-dose asa is especially effective in managing the vasomotor symptoms of et.
