Summary

With constantly improving cancer therapies, patient’s quality of life, the management of potential side effects and treatment-related symptoms have also made considerable progress. Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) still constitutes a major problem for many patients. New developments in the field allow a more comfortable administration of guideline-based antiemetic therapy and may further improve the control of nausea. Therapeutic options for the cancer anorexia–cachexia syndrome (CACS), common in advanced cancers, are still limited and hampered by numerous side effects. Among these, targeting the ghrelin-receptor pathway could be a novel approach; however, data are still immature.
