The evolving role of NK1 in CINV management

Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) affects up to 40% of oncology patients, and are among the most feared adverse events (AEs) of patients receiving chemotherapy. Progress in the last few decades has led to CINV prophylaxis with agents such as 5-HT3 receptor antagonists (RAs), and NK1 RAs. Professor Karin Jordan, from University Hospital Heidelberg, delivered a lecture on the Evolving role of NK1 in CINV management on the 14th November 2020, as part of the Hong Kong College of Radiologists Annual Scientific Meeting.

While SARS-CoV2 has been previously reported to exist in lung tissue in a 78-year-old patient who died of unexpected cardiac arrest when ready for discharge after COVID-19 hospitalisation, recently the first evidence of SARS-CoV2 infection in heart muscle cells has been reported in a case from Brazil and which is supported by evidence from other reports.
