A single-blind, randomized, five-way cross-over, safety and tolerability trial was conducted to determine whether intravenous (i.v.) dolasetron mesylate at varying single doses induces changes in ECG intervals in healthy volunteers and to compare these changes with a single intravenous dose of ondansetron or placebo. Thirty healthy male volunteers received(More)
UNLABELLED This study was conducted to determine the efficacy and safety of four intravenous (I.V.) doses of dolasetron, an investigational 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, for the treatment of postoperative nausea and/or vomiting (PONV) after outpatient surgery under general anesthesia. This multicenter, randomized, double-blind trial compared the antiemetic(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of dolasetron mesilate with placebo for the treatment of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). METHODS In a randomized, multicentre, double-blind, placebo-controlled study 337 adult patients undergoing surgery with general anaesthesia received one of four single, doses of dolasetron mesilate iv(More)
Dolasetron is a 5-hydroxytryptamine antagonist active at type III receptors; it is presently undergoing clinical evaluation for the reduction/prevention of cancer chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Following intravenous administration to healthy male subjects of doses ranging from 0.6 to 5 mg kg-1, dolasetron disappeared extremely rapidly from(More)
PURPOSE This dose-ranging trial of intravenous dolasetron mesylate (MDL73,147EF) was performed to determine its adverse and antiemetic effects in patients receiving cisplatin at doses > or = 100 mg/m2. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-nine patients treated with initial cisplatin received a single intravenous dose of dolasetron mesylate administered over 20(More)
Dolasetron is a 5-hydroxytryptamine antagonist active at type III receptors; it is presently undergoing clinical evaluation for the reduction/prevention of cancer chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. A previous study demonstrated that following intravenous administration to healthy male subjects, dolasetron disappeared extremely rapidly from plasma,(More)
PURPOSE To assess the comparative antiemetic efficacy of single-dose intravenous (IV) dolasetron mesylate and ondansetron in preventing cisplatin-induced nausea and vomiting. PATIENTS AND METHODS Cancer patients (n = 609) receiving first-course cisplatin chemotherapy were randomized to one of three treatments: 1.8 or 2.4 mg/kg dolasetron mesylate salt(More)
The aim of this work was to measure the safety and efficacy of single i.v. doses of dolasetron mesilate for the control of emesis caused by single high-dose (at least 6 Gy) radiotherapy to the upper abdomen. The double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study stratified patients on the basis of being naive or nonnaive to radiotherapy. Patients with or(More)
To investigate the pharmacological properties of the CR011-vcMMAE fully human antibody–drug conjugate (ADC), such as dose titrations, quantitation of the time (days) to complete regression, pharmacokinetics, and schedule dependency. Our prior study characterized a fully human antibody to GPNMB covalently linked to monomethylauristatin E, CR011-vcMMAE, and(More)
Selective 5-HT3 antagonists have proven to be safe and effective for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Dolasetron is a new highly selective addition to this class of antiemetics that has been shown to have significant antiemetic activity in patients receiving cisplatin-containing regimens. This pilot study was designed to evaluate(More)
