About

Nausea and vomiting are some of the most common side effects encountered in medicine. There is a high incidence of nausea and vomiting in patients receiving cancer chemotherapy and in those subjected to general anesthesia and surgery. Utilizing functional, cell-based, fluorescent cationic flux assays to screen higher plants for specific bio-activity against specific receptors implicated in the development of nausea and vomiting shows potential for the discovery of new anti-emetic agents.
