New ways to manage nausea?


Question from Diana: Are there any new ways to cope with nausea associated with chemotherapy and radiation?
Answers - Ruth Oratz, M.D., F.A.C.P. The focus of this meeting was very much on the molecular biology of breast cancer and there were not any major presentations on managing the side effects of chemotherapy. The management of nausea and vomiting has really come a long way in the last decade and I think that most of our regimens have very good anti-nausea treatments.

On Wednesday, December 17, 2008, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Updates from the 2008 San Antonio Breast Cancer SymposiumRuth Oratz, M.D., F.A.C.P. and Carol Kaplan, M.D. answered your questions about the latest updates on breast cancer risk, screening techniques, treatment options, and more.
