Patients will be treated for 2 consecutive chemo cycles with the study drug for one and placebo for the other. In addition, patients will receive an injection before the chemo, either ondansetron (if receiving placebo inhalation) or normal saline) if receiving active study drug. They will take study medication for 3 days, 4 times daily and fill out VAS scores before and after doses. Patients will be given rescue medication with each dose.


The study is comparing the use of inhaled delata-8-THC in the prevention of nausea and vomitting in patients being treated with moderately emetogenic chemotherapy, and the patients will continue use for 3 days afterward. Patients will be given rescue medication and will fill out VAS scales for nausea, pain, appetite and dizziness. Patients will be treated for 2 cycles, one cycle receiving active drug (one of 2 doses) and the other placebo. Patients receiving placebo will receive ondansetron injection before chemo and patients receiving active drug will receive a normal saline injection. Patients will take the drug 4 times daily for 3 days. The patients will return to clinic for a visit after 24-48 hours and 4 days. Patients will bring a urine sample to measure metabolite. Patients will be given a diary to monitor dosing and side effects as well as concomitant medication. The study will be conducted in 2 - 3 centers. There will be 108 patients enrolled with 27 in each of 4 groups:

Group 1 cycle 1 - Placebo cycle 2 - 300 mcg of delta-8-THC per dose Group 2 cycle 1 - Placebo cycle 2 - 600 mcg of delta-8-THC per dose Group 3 cycle 1 - 300 mcg of delta-8-THC per doseGroup cycle 2 - Placebo Group 4 cycle 1 - 600 mcg of delta-8-THC per dose cycle 2 - placebo

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Illicit use of chemicals and products whose vapors can be inhaled to produce a rapid mind-altering effect. Inhalants include aerosols, gases, and volatile solvents that are often inhaled repeatedly to achieve the short-lived intoxicating effect.

T-cell receptors composed of CD3-associated gamma and delta polypeptide chains and expressed primarily in CD4-/CD8- T-cells. The receptors appear to be preferentially located in epithelial sites and probably play a role in the recognition of bacterial antigens. The T-cell receptor gamma/delta chains are separate and not related to the gamma and delta chains which are subunits of CD3 (see ANTIGENS, CD3).

A member of the beta-globin family. In humans, delta-globin is encoded in the beta-globin gene cluster located on CHROMOSOME 11. Two delta-globin chains along with two alpha-globin chains form HEMOGLOBIN A2 which makes up about 3% of the HEMOGLOBIN in adults.

A cyclic peptide consisting of three residues of delta-N-hydroxy-delta-N-acetylornithine. It acts as an iron transport agent in Ustilago sphaerogena.

DNA sequences encoding the delta chain of the T-cell receptor. The delta-chain locus is located entirely within the alpha-chain locus.
