5. Mechanism Action Of Emeset 8mg?
Emeset 8mg tablets contains ondansetron, a potent and highly selective 5HT3 receptor-antagonist that is used as an antiemetic to control the nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy and radiotherapy, also to prevent post-operative nausea and vomiting. It is thought that chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery can cause the release of serotonin (5HT) from the cells of the small intestine, which stimulates 5HT3 receptors that are found on the vagal nerves in the intestines.
Stimulation of these nerve endings by serotonin sends nerve messages to the vomiting centre in the brain (a complex area of neuronal networks) that induces the vomiting reflex.
Ondansetron is thought to work by blocking the transmission of nerve messages from the intestines to the vomiting centre in the brain. There are also 5HT3 receptors in the chemoreceptor trigger zone (CTZ) of the area postrema in the brain, which is where the vomiting reflex originates, by sending nerve messages to the vomiting centre. It is thought that ondansetron in Emeset 8mg also blocks the 5HT3 receptors in the CTZ and this also prevents activation of the vomiting centre in the brain.
Ondansetron in Emeset 8mg thereby blocks the 5HT3 receptors found in the peripheral nervous system in the intestine and the central nervous system in the brain. This dual effect of ondansetron in Emeset 8mg prevents vomiting caused by chemotherapy and radiotherapy; also post-surgery vomiting and also helps relieve the feelings of nausea.
