How Does Nometex™ Work?

Why Do Nausea & Vomiting Occur?

Chemotherapy can affect cells within your stomach, as well as stimulate cells in the brain. When one or both of these occurs, the “vomiting center” coordinates your body’s muscular response, causing nausea and/or vomiting1.

Nometex™ is an FDA-cleared transdermal neuromodulation device that is indicated for use in the treatment of CINV.

How Does Nometex™ Work?

Mechanism of Action

  • Nometex™ generates a proprietary pulse from the underside of the device that stimulates the median nerve.
  • The generated signals travel via the peripheral nervous system to the central nervous system and the higher emetic center of the brain.
  • The signals modulate the neural pathways between the brain and the stomach, via the vagus nerve which restores normal gastric rhythm and relieving nausea and vomiting.
