Condition(s) targeted: Healthy

This study has been designed to investigate the pharmacokinetic and safety profile of the co-administration of intravenous (IV) and transdermal granisetron, as well as characterise the pharmacokinetics of multiple transdermal dosing.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Study to Assess the Pharmacokinetics, Tolerability and Safety of the co-Administration of Sancuso (Transdermal Granisetron) and Intravenous Granisetron in Healthy Subjects

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Primary outcome: Pharmacokinetic profile of the co-administration of IV granisetron and the Sancuso® patch

Secondary outcome:

Safety and tolerability of the coadministration of IV granisetron and the Sancuso® patch

Patch adhesion and residual granisetron after patch

Pharmacokinetic profile of repeated Sancuso® patch application

Detailed description: 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.
