  Purpose

Brief Summary: A randomized, single administration, double-blind, parallel- group Phase 2 dose finding study to assess the efficacy, tolerability, and safety of TRG in patients with chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) associated with the administration of highly emetogenic chemotherapy.

Primary Objective: To select a dose for Phase 3 by assessing the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of 3 doses of TRG in patients with CINV associated with the administration of highly emetogenic chemotherapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Patients With Complete Control [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Complete Control is defined as no emetic episodes, no use of rescue medications, and no more than mild nausea as defined by a categorial scale.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Patients With Complete Response [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Complete Response is defined as no emetic episodes and no use of rescue medications

  • Percentage of Patients With Total Response [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Total Response is defined as no nausea, no emetic episodes, and no use of rescue medications

  • Percentage of Patients With Major Control of Emesis [ Time Frame: 24 hrs ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Major Control of emesis = 2 emetic episodes

  • Percentage of Patients With Minor Control of Emesis [ Time Frame: 24 hrs ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Minor Control of emesis: 3-5 emetic episodes

  • Percentage of Patients With Failure [ Time Frame: 24 hrs ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Failure: > 5 emetic episodes

  • Percentage of Patients Using Rescue Medications [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to First Emetic Episode [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to First Rescue Medication [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to Treatment Failure [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to treatment failure is based on time to first emetic episode or time to rescue medication, whichever occurs first

  • Number of Emetic Episodes [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Severity of Nausea Measured by a 4 Categorical Scale [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    4 categorical scale: none, mild (did not interfere with normal daily life), moderate (interfered with normal daily life), and severe (bedridden due to nausea/ required the patient to be bedridden)

  • Patient Global Satisfaction With Antiemetic Therapy Measured by a VAS [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    VAS (visual analog scale) 0: not at all satisfied, 100: totally satisfied
