The method comprises administering to the patient an effective regimen of -D-glutamyl-L-tryptophan (SCV-07) over the course of therapy. The regimen, which includes scheduled doses of SCV-07 with respect to radiation exposure and/or chemotherapy, is effective for preventing or delaying the onset of OM.
