Exciting announcement yesterday that there is a new product called Sancuso which is an anti nausea PATCH that works for up to 5 days to control nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy. It has been approved by the FDA for use in the United States.
I have been unable to find out how much the patch is going to cost. I had excellent control taking Emend but there are those out there who have difficulty swallowing pills and Emend was approximately $375 (Thank God for insurance).
The developer, Prostrsakan, states that they have developed a patient assistance program available to “any qualified patient who would benefit from it.”
