Ages Eligible for Study:   2 Years to 5 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. 2 to 5 years of age inclusive at screening.
  2. Written parental (or appropriate legal representative) IRB approved informed consent as appropriate.
  3. Confirmed malignancy.
  4. Scheduled to receive 2 or more cycles* of emetogenic chemotherapy requiring 5-HT3 antagonist treatment.
  5. Scheduled to receive one or more consecutive days of 5-HT3 antagonist treatment, per cycle, as CINV prophylaxis.

    • The cycles of chemotherapy must be consecutive (i.e. one followed by the other) but do not have to be the first and second cycle of a line of treatment.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Hypersensitivities, allergies or contraindications to study medications; intolerance of medical tape or sticking plaster.

  3. Patients with a known history or predisposition to cardiac conduction interval abnormalities, including QT Syndrome, or known family history of long QT Syndrome or taking medications that are known to prolong the QT interval.
  4. Patients scheduled to have routine surgery during the study duration.
  5. Patients with a life expectancy of <6 months.
  6. Scarring or significant skin disease on both upper arms.
  7. Administration of other investigational drugs within 30 days preceding the screening visit, except for anticancer treatments.
  8. Any conditions associated with non-compliance.
