This medication is an antiemetic, prescribed for prevention of acute and delayed chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) and for prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting.
Why would this drug be used? Aprepitant or fosaprepitant is given with two other types of anti-nausea drugs to prevent immediate and delayed nausea and vomiting after highly vomit-inducing chemotherapy. How does this drug work? Aprepitant belongs to the class of drugs called anti-nausea drugs or antiemetics. It blocks a receptor in the brain called the neurokinin-1 (NK1) receptor. This prevents the stimulation of the vomiting center and chemotherapy receptor trigger zone in the brain. While aprepitant comes in capsule form, fosaprepitant is an intravenous (IV) form of the drug. It is converted into aprepitant once it is in the body.
