Study Title

Improving Prediction of Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea: Integrating Genes, Behavior, and the Microbiome



Aim 1: To conduct a genome-wide association study of nausea in cancer patients receiving moderately- or highly-emetogenic chemotherapy Aim 2: To identify biological pathways enriched by genetic variants associated with nausea Aim 3: To develop and validate a new algorithm to predict clinical risk of nausea based on host genetic, demographic, clinical, and patient-reported risk factors Aim 4: To explore associations of the pre-chemotherapy gut microbiome with nausea
