Experimental: Sancuso® patch/IV granisetron
Subjects will receive 1 Sancuso® patch worn for 7 days (168 hours). Immediately after the patch has been applied on Day 1, IV granisetron will be administered over 30 seconds. Following patch removal at 168 hours, a new patch will be immediately applied to the opposite arm and will remain in place for a further 7 days (168 to 336 hours).
Sancuso® 3.1 mg/24 hours; transdermal. One patch applied to healthy intact skin on the upper outer arm and worn for 7 days (168 hours) followed by a second patch applied to the opposite arm at 168 hours for a further 7 days (168 to 336 hours).
Kytril® (granisetron hydrochloride) 1 mg/mL; IV; 0.01 mg/kg (maximum 1 mg) administered over 30 seconds immediately following patch application on Day 1 only.
Sancuso® is designed to provide antiemetic prophylaxis for chemotherapy of up to 5 days duration. In exceptional clinical situations in which the patch is not applied at the appropriate time (i.e. 24-48 hours pre-chemotherapy), clinicians might use a single IV dose of granisetron to provide prophylaxis while the granisetron from the patch reaches a therapeutic plasma concentration.
Most chemotherapeutics are dosed in a single day, with a 2- or 3-week interval between doses; however, several regimens are administered over more than 5 days and others are given at frequencies (e.g. every 5 days). Thus, more than one patch may be required to provide continuous antiemetic prophylaxis. Characterisation of the pharmacokinetics of multiple transdermal dosing offers useful information for clinicians who treat patients with the latter types of regimens.
