Nausea and Vomiting

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) updated their antiemetic guideline to include the use of a novel antiemetic combination for cancer patients.

A phase III study showed that APF530 could improve control of emesis in cancer patients receiving highly emetogenic chemotherapy.

The US Food and Drug Administration has approved rolapitant for the prevention of delayed phase nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy.

The FDA has approved combined netupitant and palonosetron (Akynzeo) for the treatment of chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting in patients with cancer.

Rolapitant added to granisetron/dexamethasone helped prevented chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in patients treated with cisplatin-based chemotherapy, according to a study at the ESMO 2014 Congress.

New research confirms that use of metoclopramide, commonly used for nausea and vomiting, in early pregnancy does not increase risk of major malformations.

Asking patients to track their nausea and vomiting after a course of chemotherapy helped the health care team to adjust medications and achieve better control of symptoms, according to the results of a small single center study.
