Official Title

A Randomized, Double-blind, Double-dummy, Parallel Group Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Palonosetron HCl Buccal Film versus IV Palonosetron 0.25 mg for the Prevention of Chemotherapy-induced Nausea and Vomiting in Cancer Patients Receiving Moderately Emetogenic Chemotherapy


The phase 3 study is to compare the efficacy and safety of palonosetron, a long-acting 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, by buccal film delivery compared to IV injection for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Subjects receive a single dose of palonosetron prior to moderately emetogenic chemotherapy.
