Aprepitant (Emend) is a potent, oral antiemetic used to prevent chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) and postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). Fosaprepitant is a prodrug of aprepitant, with the benefit that it can be administered intravenously for patients who are too nauseous to reliably take oral aprepitant. Aprepitant specifically targets and inhibits NK1 receptors, effectively preventing the emetic signals from being transmitted.
