About RolapitantRolapitant is a potent, highly selective, and long-acting NK-1 receptor antagonist that is currently being evaluated in Phase 3 trials for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, or CINV. TESARO is investigating whether a single dose of rolapitant will significantly improve prevention of both nausea and vomiting during the 5-day at-risk period for cancer patients receiving emetogenic chemotherapy when administered along with the current standard of care (a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist plus a corticosteroid), as compared to the current standard of care alone. About TESARO TESARO is an oncology-focused biopharmaceutical company dedicated to improving the lives of cancer patients by acquiring, developing and commercializing safer and more effective therapeutics.
