Vofopitant (GR-205,171) is a drug which acts as an NK1 receptor antagonist. It has antiemetic effects as with other NK1 antagonists,[1] and also shows anxiolytic actions in animals.[2] It was trialled for applications such as the treatment of social phobia and post-traumatic stress disorder, but did not prove sufficiently effective to be marketed.[3][4]
