Global Chemotheraphy Induced Nausea and Vomitting (CINV) Drugs Market 2015-2019
CINV is one of the most dreaded adverse effects of chemotherapy. It often leads to the postponement or refusal of potentially curative chemotherapy treatment for cancer. This nausea and vomiting, associated with chemotherapy regimen, affects the quality of life of an individual.
The neurotransmitters in CINV are dopamine, 5-HT3, substance P, and endocannabinoids. CINV can be caused by the stimulation of vomiting center by the abdominal vagal afferents or by the direct stimulation of CTZ in the area postrema. The risk of development of CINV changes with the use of different types of chemotherapy regimens such as high, moderate, low, and minimal risk.
Based on the type of CINV, different treatment regimens are prescribed. The classes of drugs used in the treatment of CINV are 5-HT3 receptor antagonists, NK1 receptor antagonists, corticosteroids, dopamine antagonists, benzodiazepines, and cannabinoids. Most of the drugs used in the treatment are helpful in the prevention of vomiting but show less effect in treating nausea.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One major trend in the market is individuals tend to develop resistance to monotherapies over a period of time, resulting in the increased preference for combination therapies. These combination therapies have a better safety and efficacy profile, increasing their preference for treating CINV.”
According to the report, one key driver of this market is patent expiries result in the loss of market exclusivity of a drug, leading to a rapid decline in its sales. This leads to the market entry of generic forms that have a similar efficacy and safety profile as the branded drug and are available at low prices. The patents of most of the CINV drugs have either expired or are set to expire by the end of the forecast period.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is off-label drugs are unapproved medications, but show efficacy in the treatment of the condition. Many off-label drugs are used to manage CINV. Corticosteroids, such as dexamethasone, are commonly used to treat CINV.
