Chemical substance
Description
Aprepitant

Aprepitant is a selective high-affinity antagonist at human substance P neurokinin 1 (NK1) receptors.

Fosaprepitant

Fosaprepitant is the prodrug of aprepitant and when administered intravenously is converted rapidly to aprepitant. The contribution of fosaprepitant to the overall antiemetic effect has not fully been characterised, but a transient contribution during the initial phase cannot be ruled out.
