NK1 receptor antagonists

What are NK1 receptor antagonists

Neurokinin-1 (NK1) receptor antagonists are used for prevention of acute and delayed nausea and vomiting. The NK1 receptor antagonist competitively binds to the NK1 receptor, which blocks the binding of substance P and prevents the emetic signal being transmitted. NK1 receptor antagonists can be used in conjunction with 5-HT3-receptor antagonists and corticosteroids to augment their antiemetic activity.

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
