RATIONALE: Antiemetic drugs may help to reduce or prevent nausea and vomiting in patients being treated with chemotherapy.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing how well different antiemetic drugs work in preventing delayed nausea after chemotherapy in patients who have cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Nausea and Vomiting Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific||Drug: dolasetron mesylate Drug: granisetron hydrochloride Drug: ondansetron Drug: prochlorperazine Procedure: quality-of-life assessment||Phase 3|
- Compare the effectiveness of a 5 hydroxytryptamine 3 (5-HT3) receptor antagonist antiemetic vs prochlorperazine in controlling delayed nausea after chemotherapy in patients with chemotherapy-naive cancer.
- Compare the effectiveness of prochlorperazine administered on a preventive vs as needed basis in controlling delayed nausea after chemotherapy in these patients.
- Compare the quality of life of patients treated with a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist antiemetic vs prochlorperazine.
- Compare the quality of life of patients treated with prochlorperazine administered on a preventive vs as needed basis.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to center.
Patients receive their scheduled chemotherapy regimen containing doxorubicin and their scheduled oral 5 hydroxytryptamine 3 receptor antagonist antiemetic (ondansetron, granisetron, tropisetron, or dolasetron mesylate) combined with dexamethasone on day 1.
Patients are then randomized to 1 of 3 antiemetic arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive oral prochlorperazine every 8 hours on days 2 and 3.
- Arm II: Patients receive oral ondansetron every 12 hours, oral granisetron every 12 hours, or oral dolasetron mesylate either once a day or every 12 hours on days 2 and 3.
- Arm III: Patients receive oral prochlorperazine as needed, up to 4 times per day, on days 2 and 3.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline and on day 4.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 670 patients will be accrued for this study within 3 years.
