Fear of nausea a significant issue and often not discussed with
healthcare providers

CALIFON, NJ, April 25 /PRNewswire/ – PediatRx, Inc. (OTCBB: PEDX) today
commented on studies which reveal that chemotherapy-induced nausea and
vomiting is one of the most feared of all chemotherapy-related side
effects.(1-9 )The fear of nausea and subsequent vomiting is many times so significant
that patients can develop a condition known as ‘anticipatory’ nausea,
where the patient becomes nauseous primarily as a result of the fear of
becoming nauseous.(9) This fear may be left unmentioned during discussions between patients
and healthcare professionals.

Certain medicines, called anti-emetics, can be used to prevent and treat
nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. A
class of anti-emetics, called 5HT3 receptor antagonists (or 5HT3s), are
often used for prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting
associated with cancer therapy.

Penny Stocks are stocks traded for under $2 and they represent the small cap companies. They trade on the OTCBB so you will not find them on the major stock exchanges. They are very cheap stocks and normally come for businesses needing capital. They are a very risky investment as the business can go under and leave you with a stock worth nothing. However that being said penny stock trading can be a great money maker, and there are numerous traders who make 6 figures and more from them each year.

The best reasons to trade in penny stocks are the fact that they do not require a large initial investment, meaning that they are an affordable investment for many. Penny stocks are cheap. For example if you were to buy 1000 shares in a company with shares at 10 cents, you would only require an investment of $100, whereas if the shares cost $5 you would require an investment of $5000. Penny stocks also have the potential of huge gains, and have been known to rise as much as 1000% daily. Therefore your $100 investment can be worth $1000. This is very unlikely to happen to other stocks from large cap businesses.
