Pharmacological management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in children with cancer



Pharmacological management of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in children with cancer



Journal of ChemoTherapy 21(6): 605-610



Nausea and vomiting are respectively the first and third most relevant chemotherapy-associated side effects in pediatric oncology, despite the introduction of new antiemetic agents. Symptoms change according to the antineoplastic agents used, and are influenced by age since emotional and psychological aspects play an important role. Studies conducted on new antiemetic therapies usually focus on adult populations affected by tumors, whereas there are very few series including pediatric patients, who are even more severely affected by this specific side effect.
