ALOXI Helps Prevent CINV

ALOXI (palonosetron HCI) injection is an anti-nausea medication that may help prevent CINV when you take chemotherapy. ALOXI is given as a single injection, often given through the same intravenous (IV) line as your chemotherapy.

ALOXI can help prevent nausea and vomiting on the day of chemotherapy that is highly likely to cause nausea and vomiting and up to 5 days following chemotherapy that is moderately likely to cause nausea and vomiting.

If you are taking chemotherapy or are about to begin chemotherapy, spend a few moments to learn about CINV. Most importantly, talk with your doctor about any symptoms of CINV you may be experiencing. Then ask what ALOXI may do to help.
