About these proceedings


Much progress has been made in the treatment of emesis caused by antineoplastic therapy, and particularly chemotherapy. However, some aspects remain controversial and the subject of continued research. This completely updated comprehensive manual on antiemetics covers a wide range of clinically relevant topics, providing the reader with a good source of easy consultation, and giving an overall picture of the state of the art and some clues for future development.
