Fosaprepitant (Emend) Reactions


Our institution has been observing a recent increase in hypersensitivity reactions associated with fosaprepitant. The hypersensitivity reactions have been occurring within a minutes of infusion initiation, and has occurred with patients who have previously tolerated the infusion.

Has anyone observed any similar trends at their institutions?

Thank you,
