Netupitant-Palonosetron FDC Market - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022
The fixed dose combination (FDC) of netupitant and palonosetron is a product proposed for the treatment of the most common side effects of chemotherapy-nausea and vomiting. The product is currently in its third stage of trial. Netupitant is a novel and a NK1 receptor antagonist, and palonosetron is a second-generation 5-HT3 receptor antagonist. While netupitant was not available in the drug market earlier, palonosetron drugs were already present under trade names Paloxi, Onicit, and Aloxi. The combination drug is expected to overcome major problems associated with the current mode of treatment of the CINV condition, which involves the use of 5-HT3 receptor antagonists.
