Clinical Pharmacology

Granisetron is a selective 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptor antagonist with little or no affinity for other serotonin receptors, including 5-HT 5-HT, 5-HT, 5-HT; for alpha-, alpha-, or beta-adrenoreceptors; for dopamine-D; or for histamine-H; benzodiazepine; picrotoxin or opioid receptors.

Serotonin receptors of the 5-HT type are located peripherally on vagal nerve terminals and centrally in the chemoreceptor trigger zone of the area postrema. During chemotherapy that induces vomiting, mucosal enterochromaffin cells release serotonin, which stimulates 5-HT receptors. This evokes vagal afferent discharge, inducing vomiting. Animal studies demonstrate that, in binding to 5-HT receptors, granisetron blocks serotonin stimulation and subsequent vomiting after emetogenic stimuli such as cisplatin. In the ferret animal model, a single granisetron injection prevented vomiting due to high-dose cisplatin or arrested vomiting within 5 to 30 seconds.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
Sancuso is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to granisetron or to any of the components of the patch.

The use of granisetron in patients may mask a progressive ileus and/or gastric distention caused by the underlying condition.
