RATIONALE: Antiemetic drugs, such as aprepitant, granisetron, and dexamethasone, may help lessen or prevent nausea and vomiting in patients treated with chemotherapy.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well giving aprepitant together with granisetron and dexamethasone works in preventing nausea and vomiting in patients receiving cyclophosphamide before undergoing an autologous stem cell transplant.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Breast Cancer Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders Gestational Trophoblastic Tumor Leukemia Lymphoma Multiple Myeloma and Plasma Cell Neoplasm Myelodysplastic Syndromes Myelodysplastic/Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Nausea and Vomiting Neuroblastoma Ovarian Cancer Testicular Germ Cell Tumor||Drug: Aprepitant Drug: Cyclophosphamide Drug: Dexamethasone Drug: Granisetron hydrochloride||Not Applicable|
- Evaluate the efficacy of the addition of aprepitant in controlling acute vomiting with the standard prophylactic anti-emetic combination of granisetron hydrochloride and dexamethasone in patients receiving therapy comprising high-dose cyclophosphamide to mobilize stem cells prior to leukapheresis for autologous stem cell transplantation.
- Evaluate the efficacy of the addition of aprepitant in controlling delayed vomiting in these patients.
- Evaluate the efficacy of the addition of aprepitant in controlling overall nausea in these patients.
- Identify side effects of the addition of aprepitant to this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive granisetron hydrochloride orally or IV and oral dexamethasone, followed 1 hour later by cyclophosphamide IV over 2 hours on day 1. Patients also receive oral aprepitant once daily on days 1-3. Treatment continues in absence of unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for 30 days.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 35 patients will be accrued for this study.
