Lee Schwartzberg on Nausea Concerns for Newly Diagnosed Patients
Lee Schwartzberg, MD, FACP
Lee Schwartzberg, executive director of the University of Tennessee West Cancer Center, discusses concerns that patients newly diagnosed with cancer have about chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).
Schwartzberg said that many patients fear that they will be sick for days after getting chemotherapy, though those concerns are no longer warranted thanks to the variety of different medicines available to treat nausea and vomiting. But while the majority of patients do not get sick, some still do, creating an unmet need in oncology.
