Bemesetron (MDL-72,222) is a drug which acts as an antagonist at the 5HT3 receptor.[1] It has antiemetic effects comparable to metoclopramide,[2] however it is not used clinically, instead its main application is in scientific research studying the involvement of the 5HT3 receptor in the actions of drugs of abuse.[3][4][5][6]
