Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time-matched, placebo-corrected change from baseline in QTc based on the Fridericia correction (QTcF). [ Time Frame: 0 to 120 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • QTc with Bazett correction (QTcB), heart rate, PR interval, QRS interval, uncorrected QT interval, change in ECG morphological patterns and correlation between the QTcF change from baseline and plasma granisetron concentrations [ Time Frame: 0 to 120 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Relationship of plasma concentration of granisetron versus QTcF, both graphical and mixed effects analyses of plasma concentration of granisetron versus QTcF will be performed [ Time Frame: 0 to 120 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Patch adhesion and residual granisetron after patch use. [ Time Frame: 0 to 120 hours post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

Granisetron is a well tested and established 5-HT3 receptor antagonist used in both oral and intravenous (IV) forms. A transdermal form of granisetron (Sancuso®) was approved by the United States (US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2008.

Many of the 5-HT3 antagonists were developed and approved before the adoption of the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E14 standard on QTc and cardiac testing. The association of non-cardiac medicinal products with the potential to prolong the QT interval and induce torsades des pointes (TdP) has significant implications for the future development of medicinal products.
