How Does SANCUSO Prevent Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting (CINV)?
-
How CINV starts3

Some chemotherapy may irritate cells in the small intestine and/or in your brain.

Learn how the brain instructs the body to react through feelings of nausea and/or vomiting in some people treated for cancer
Once irritated, cells in the small intestine send messages to the brain.
When irritated, cells in one area of the brain send messages to a different area of the brain.
Upon receiving these messages, the brain instructs the body to react through feelings of nausea and/or vomiting.
How SANCUSO helps prevent CINV1

From the time that you apply the patch, SANCUSO slowly and continuously delivers granisetron through your skin and into your bloodstream until it's removed within 7 days.1

SANCUSO (Granisetron Transdermal System) slowly delivers granisetron through your skin and into your bloodstream
Granisetron blocks cells in the small intestine from sending messages to the brain that trigger CINV.1
Granisetron blocks cells in one area of the brain from sending messages to a different area of the brain that triggers CINV.1
Because the brain does not receive these messages, feelings of nausea and/or vomiting are less likely to occur.1
