Casopitant

Casopitant

Casopitant (trade names Rezonic (US), Zunrisa (EU)) is an neurokinin 1 (NK1) receptor antagonist undergoing research for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).[1] It is currently under development by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

In July 2008, the company filed a marketing authorisation application with the European Medicines Agency. The application was withdrawn in September 2009 because GSK decided that further safety assessment was necessary.[2]
