“Antiemetic Activity of D-Lysergic Acid Diethylamide”. 
J.Pharmacol.& Exper.Therap.. 1961 July;133:137-139.
"d-Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD-25) and 2 d-bromolysergic acid diethylamide (BOL 180, a congener of LSD-25 devoid of CNS stimulant properties) were tested for their efficacy against apomorphine-induced emesis in dogs. In addition, LSD-25 was tested against emesis induced by emetine, Hydergine, morphine, ouabain and protoveratrine. . LSD-25 effectively antagonized apomorphine-induced emesis whereas BOL-180 showed no protective effect. LSD-25 also protected against vomiting evoked by morphine and Hydergine, but it was ineffective against emetine, ouabain and protoveratrine. These findings suggest that the mechanism of antiemetic action of LSD-25 is a selective depression of the medullary emetic chemoreceptor trigger zone."
