NewsGuard 100/100 Score

A.P. Pharma, Inc. (OTCBB: APPA.OB), a specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced additional data from the Company's Phase 3 study of APF530 for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). The findings from the analysis of this subset of data indicate that APF530 offered comparable nausea control and patient satisfaction to palonosetron (Aloxi®) over a 5-day period. The Company presented the study results today at a poster presentation during the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer and the International Society of Oral Oncology (MASCC/ISOO) International Symposium in New York. As previously reported, the Phase 3 study showed APF530 was comparable to palonosetron in preventing both acute- and delayed-onset CINV in patients receiving either moderately emetogenic chemotherapy (MEC) or highly emetogenic chemotherapy (HEC).

"Delayed-onset nausea and vomiting remains a major issue associated with many cancer treatment options, which can affect a patient's quality of life as well as his or her ability to sustain the recommended potentially lifesaving chemotherapy regimen," said Rebecca A. Clark-Snow, RN, BSN, OCN, clinical nurse coordinator and chair of the MASCC Antiemetic Study Group. "In particular, patients who have experienced nausea and vomiting during previous chemotherapy treatments are more susceptible to experiencing a recurrence during subsequent therapy. These data indicate that APF530 has the potential to be a promising therapy option for physicians and patients."
