    • Overview

      Chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) leads to morbidity and complications in care and occurs in up to 80% of patients[i]. Despite the recent advances in newly available antiemetics, approximately 50% of patients experience CINV which can have a severe effect on the cancer patient’s quality of life.  In addition to CINV having a substantial negative impact on the patient’s quality of life, it can also lead to chemotherapy delays, dose reductions, or discontinuation of therapy.  CINV can be a major barrier to therapy if not treated appropriately. With the development of therapy options in a wider range of classes, it is possible for more patients to better control their CINV. Antiemetic guidelines should be utilized when choosing CINV prevention therapy, both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic. Nausea and vomiting prevention should be a combination of lifestyle and medication therapy to achieve the best possible results.
