Drug dramatically reduces nausea and vomiting in bone marrow transplant patients
Date:3/1/2010

ignals from the brain, and is taken together with drugs that block signals from the stomach.

In Stiff's Phase III, blinded, prospective study, 90 bone marrow transplant patients were randomly assigned to receive aprepitant and 89 patients were randomly assigned to receive a placebo.

The aprepitant group did not experience significantly more side effects than the placebo group. Aprepitant also had no meaningful impact on the success of the transplant, relapse rates or overall survival.

Bone marrow transplants are used to treat such diseases as leukemia, lymphoma and Hodgkin's disease. Patients receive high-dose chemotherapy to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy also kills immune system cells. So patients receive infusions of donated bone marrow cells that develop into healthy new immune cells.

Loyola has the largest bone marrow transplant program in Illinois. "One of the main themes of our research is to make bone marrow transplants more patient-friendly," Stiff said. "Transplants are much more comfortable and easier to tolerate than they were a few years ago."

Previous studies at Loyola were instrumental in showing the effectiveness of the drug palifermin in preventing mouth and throat sores in transplant patients.
