Kabidan is a potent, highly selective, and competitive 5HT3-receptor antagonist, a kind of serotonin receptor found on peripheral neurons and in the CNS. By activating vagal afferents through 5HT3-receptors, chemotherapeutic drugs and radiation may stimulate the release of 5HT (serotonin) from enterochromaffin cells in the visceral mucosa and therefore initiate the emesis reflex and its accompanying sense of nausea.
