Abstract

Patients undergoing photopheresis are required to ingest the drug 8- MOP as part of their treatment. This drug causes nausea as a side effect. Ginger taken prior to 8-MOP may substantially reduce this side effect. This study compared patients' nausea when taking 8-MOP with and without ginger.
