What is Dolasetron
Dolasetron is an antinauseant and antiemetic agent indicated for the prevention of nausea and vomiting associated with moderately-emetogenic cancer chemotherapy and for the prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting. Dolasetron is a highly specific and selective serotonin 5-HT3 receptor antagonist. This drug is not shown to have activity at other known serotonin receptors, and has low affinity for dopamine receptors.
Dolasetron mechanism of action
Dolasetron is a selective serotonin 5-HTsub3/sub receptor antagonist. In vivo, the drug is rapidly converted into its major active metabolite, hydrodolasetron, which seems to be largely responsible for the drug’s pharmacological activity. The antiemetic activity of the drug is brought about through the inhibition of 5-HTsub3/sub receptors present both centrally (medullary chemoreceptor zone) and peripherally (GI tract). This inhibition of 5-HTsub3/sub receptors in turn inhibits the visceral afferent stimulation of the vomiting center, likely indirectly at the level of the area postrema, as well as through direct inhibition of serotonin activity within the area postrema and the chemoreceptor trigger zone.
