REVIEW
Bernardo L Rapoport
Even when chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) can be effectively controlled in the acute phase, it may still occur in the delayed phase. Identifying at-risk patients is complex and requires consideration of clinical, personal, demographic, and behavioral factors. Delayed CINV has a significant detrimental effect on patients' daily life and is responsible for significant healthcare resource utilization. Patients who do not experience acute CINV are not necessarily exempt from delayed CINV, and healthcare professionals have been shown to underestimate the incidence of delayed CINV...

Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) continues to be a common symptom experienced by children undergoing cancer treatment despite the use of contemporary antiemetics. Integrative therapeutic approaches in addition to standard pharmacologic antiemetic regimes offer potential to control CINV. The purpose of this review was to identify current evidence on integrative therapeutic approaches for the control of CINV in children with cancer. Online search engines (PubMed, CINAHL, PsychINFO) were queried using MESH terms...

Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) remains one of the most disturbing side effects of cancer treatment. Research in antiemetic therapy has progressed gradually since the early eighties, and the development of antiemetic agents continues. This review focuses on the current management of CINV based on the most recent guidelines, and adherence to the latter is examined more carefully. Setrons (5HT3 receptor antagonists), corticosteroids, and NK-1 receptor antagonists are the cornerstones of antiemetic therapy...

PURPOSE: Nabilone is a synthetic cannabinoid with properties that make it an appealing candidate as a postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) prophylactic adjunct. Nabilone has proven clinical utility in chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting but has not been adequately tested for PONV. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a single dose of nabilone for the prevention of PONV. METHODS: This was a pragmatic single-centre randomized-controlled trial comparing oral nabilone vs placebo for the prevention of PONV...

PURPOSE: There is no positive evidence for the efficacy of antiemetic triplet therapy with aprepitant (APR), palonosetron (PALO), and dexamethasone (DEX) for moderate emetogenic chemotherapy, especially for gynecologic malignancies. Thus, the present study evaluated the efficacy of this triplet therapy in patients receiving carboplatin and paclitaxel (CP) for gynecologic malignancy. METHODS: Seventy patients with gynecologic cancer receiving CP were enrolled into a prospective single-arm study with APR (125 mg on day 1, 80 mg on days 2-3), PALO (0...

: 221 Background: To our knowledge, no study has examined adherence to antiemetic guidelines with soon-to-be-approved or newly approved chemotherapy agents. In 2015, the Food and Drug Administration approved 18 cancer drugs, underscoring the timeliness of this topic. Here, we hypothesize that patients prescribed new drugs are at risk for poor guideline adherence, and we report on antiemetic prescribing practices and outcomes with TAS-102, a recently approved drug for metastatic colorectal cancer...

: 31 Background: In 2013 Cancer Care Ontario released updated antiemetic recommendations supporting the use of aprepitant-based combinations as 1(st) line therapy for highly emetogenic and 2(nd) line therapy for moderately emetogenic chemotherapy and discouraging the prolonged use of 5-HT3 antagonists. In 2014 changes were made in the Ontario drug formulary to align public funding to those recommendations. The impact of the changes in guidance and public funding on prescribing practices are now being analyzed...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) reactivation is relatively rare compared with hepatitis B reactivation in patients treated with immunosuppressive or anticancer drugs. Here, we present the first case of genotype 2 HCV reactivation due to antiemetic steroid therapy during chemotherapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which was verified by not only increased viral load but also pathological exacerbation of liver injury during HCV reactivation. Further chemotherapy for HCC could be continued without steroid therapy...

Chemotherapy-induced nausea (CIN) has a significant negative impact on the quality of life of cancer patients. The use of 5-hydroxytryptamine-3 (5-HT3) receptor antagonists (RAs) has reduced the risk of vomiting, but (except for palonosetron) their effect on nausea, especially delayed nausea, is limited. This article reviews the role of NK1RAs when combined with 5-HT3RA-dexamethasone in CIN prophylaxis. Aprepitant has not shown consistent superiority over a two-drug (ondansetron-dexamethasone) combination in nausea control after cisplatin- or anthracycline-cyclophosphamide (AC)-based highly emetogenic chemotherapy (HEC)...

The MITO 15 was a prospective, single-arm trial, evaluating trabectedin monotherapy in patients with recurrent ovarian cancer (OC) who were BRCA mutation-carriers or had a BRCAness phenotype. It is largely reported that trabectedin may induce nausea and vomiting but the real emetogenic potential of the drug, in the different schedules, has never been fully described; furthermore, OC patients are known to have an enhanced risk of developing nausea and vomiting due to female gender, abdominal spreading of the disease, and major surgery experienced by most of them...

PURPOSE: Given that the prognosis of recurrent malignant glioma (MG) remains poor, improving quality of life (QoL) through symptom management is important. Meta-analyses establishing antiemetic guidelines have demonstrated the superiority of palonosetron (PAL) over older 5-hydroxytryptamine 3-receptor antagonists in chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) prevention, but excluded patients with gliomas. Irinotecan plus bevacizumab is a treatment frequently used in MG, but is associated with low (55%) CINV complete response (CR; no emesis or use of rescue antiemetic) with commonly prescribed ondansetron...
