Dolasetron also has a particular characteristic insofar as it is a prodrug that has to be converted in vivo to its active metabolite hydrodolasetron before exerting its effects. Early clinical studies of dosage regimens took into consideration these differences in half-life; thus, ondansetron was initially administered 3 times daily compared with once daily for the other 5-HT3 antagonists. It has now been 5-HT3 Receptor Antagonists 29 demonstrated that ondansetron, as well as the other compounds, can be effectively administered once daily and that antiemetic efficacy persists long after one or two plasma half-lives.

Therefore, it may be concluded that inspiratory premotoneurons make a major contribution to vomiting contractions of the diaphragm, at least in dogs. This conclusion, however, does not exclude the participation of other neurons. Soon after that study [34] Nonaka and Miller [36] found that 23 of 43 propriospinal inspiratory neurons in the upper cervical cord (C1-C3) produced SH-type firings during fictive vomiting. Subsequently, Miller and Yates [37] performed bilateral injections of kainic acid in the C1–C3 spinal segments to evaluate emetic functions of upper cervical inspiratory neurons, and reported that these procedures had no major effects on phrenic, intercostal or abdominal nerve activities during respiration, vomiting and coughing.
