This update of the 2013 clinical practice guideline provides clinicians with guidance regarding the use of aprepitant and palonosetron for the prevention of acute chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) in children. The recommendations were based on three systematic reviews. Substantive changes were made to the guideline recommendations including the inclusion of palonosetron to the 5-HT3 antagonists recommended for children receiving highly emetogenic chemotherapy (HEC) and the recommendation of aprepitant for children 6 months of age or older receiving HEC. To optimize CINV control in children, future work must focus on closing critical research gaps.
