The marked progress in controlling emesis caused by cisplatin characterizes the current status of antiemetic treatment for all chemotherapy. Cisplatin has provided a model for antiemetic studies. Strategies for controlling cisplatin-induced emesis are at least as successful when applied to other chemotherapy, and persistent problems such as delayed emesis and the emesis associated with consecutive-day chemotherapy are also similar to or less severe than those observed with cisplatin. The purpose of this report is twofold: first to outline briefly therapy for cisplatin-induced emesis as illustrated by several new studies, and, second, to report on a new trial that incorporates some different strategies in the control of delayed emesis after cisplatin.
