Drugs to tackle all forms of nausea and vomiting
This article was originally published in Start Up
The various triggers that case nausea and vomiting are conveyed to the brain via different pathways that converge to create a final common pathway leading to the vomiting center in the medulla region of the brain. Previous attempts to develop drugs that target this common pathway have failed in the clinic because they produced anxiety and panic attacks, but Epiomed Therapeutics Inc. thinks it has discovered the reasons for the anxiety and is developing a redesigned product devoid of this side effect.
