Palonosetron and prednisolone for the prevention of nausea and emesis during fractionated radiotherapy and 5 cycles of concomitant weekly cisplatin—a phase II study – Online First – Springer

The present study demonstrates that an antiemetic prophylaxis consisting of palonosetron and prednisolone is insufficient for the prevention of nausea and vomiting induced by radiotherapy and weekly cisplatin in patients treated for gynecological cancer. The addition of a neurokinin-1 receptor antagonist should be investigated in a randomized, double-blind study in this setting.
