pharmachologic effect

Pharmacological action - antiemetic.


Granisetron is a selective antagonist of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-3) receptors located at the end of the vagal nerve and the trigger zone of the bottom of the fourth ventricle of the brain (practically does not affect other serotonin receptors), with a pronounced antiemetic effect. Studies have shown that Kitril has low affinity for other types of receptors, including 5-HT and dopamine D2 binding sites. Eliminates vomiting that occurs when the parasympathetic nervous system is excited due to the release of serotonin by enterochromaffin cells.

Cytril eliminates nausea and vomiting caused by cytotoxic chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and postoperative nausea and vomiting.

Cytril does not affect the concentration of prolactin and aldosterone in the blood plasma.



Granisetron absorption after oral administration is rapid and complete, but the absolute bioavailability is reduced to 60% due to the effect of "first passage" through the liver. Food intake does not affect the bioavailability of the drug.


The cytril is distributed to organs and tissues, the average volume of distribution is 3 l / kg. Distributed in plasma and erythrocytes. Communication with plasma proteins is approximately 65%.


Biotransformation occurs mainly in the liver by N-demethylation and oxidation of the aromatic ring, followed by conjugation. In vitro studies have shown that ketoconazole inhibits the metabolism of Cyril, which suggests the participation of isoenzyme 3A of the cytochrome P450 system.


With the urine in unchanged form, on average, 12% is excreted and in the form of metabolites - 47% of the dose. The remaining 41% is excreted in the form of metabolites.

T1 / 2 in oral and in / in the introduction of 9 hours, with a wide individual variability.

Concentrations of granisetron in plasma do not clearly correlate with its antiemetic effect. The therapeutic effect is observed even when granisetron is no longer detected in the plasma.

Pharmacokinetics in Special Patient Groups

In elderly patients, the pharmacokinetic parameters after a single IV administration did not differ from those in young patients.

In patients with severe renal failure, the pharmacokinetic parameters after a single IV administration did not differ from those in patients with normal renal function.

In patients with hepatic impairment caused by neoplastic changes, the overall plasma clearance is about half compared with patients with normal liver function. Despite these changes, dose adjustment is not required.

Pharmacokinetics in children: When administered granisetron at a dose of 20 g / kg body weight, there was no clinically significant difference in pharmacokinetics in adults and children.


Cytostatic chemotherapy

prevention of nausea and vomiting during cytotoxic chemotherapy in adults (coated tablets);

prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting during cytostatic chemotherapy in adults and children over 2 years old (concentrate for preparing a solution for infusion).

Radiation therapy

prevention of nausea and vomiting during radiation therapy in adults (coated tablets);

prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting during radiotherapy in adults (concentrate for preparing an infusion solution).

Postoperative nausea and vomiting

therapy of postoperative nausea and vomiting in adults (concentrate for preparing a solution for infusion).


hypersensitivity to granisetron or any of the components of the drug;

hypersensitivity reactions to other selective antagonists of 5-HT3 receptors in history;



partial intestinal obstruction;


Data on the efficacy and safety of the drug in children under 2 years of age are not available.

pregnancy and lactation

For women during pregnancy, Cytril is prescribed only when the intended benefit to the mother outweighs the potential risk to the fetus and child. The cytril does not have a teratogenic effect on animals; no studies have been conducted in pregnant women.

Side effects

In most cases, side effects with the use of Kitril were not severe and were tolerated by patients without interrupting therapy.

Rare and sometimes severe cases of hypersensitivity (for example, anaphylaxis) are noted.

On the part of the digestive system: abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, flatulence, increased activity of hepatic transaminases (ALT, AST) usually within their normal values, dyspepsia; rarely - heartburn, a change in taste.

Of the nervous system: headache, insomnia, drowsiness, weakness; rarely - anxiety, anxiety, dizziness.

On the part of the immune system: skin rash, hyperthermia, bronchospasm, urticaria, pruritus; rarely, hypersensitivity reactions.

Since the cardiovascular system: arrhythmia, chest pain, decrease or increase in blood pressure.

From the skin and its appendages: very rarely - skin rash, swelling / swelling of the face.

On the part of the body as a whole: very rarely - flu-like syndrome.


The cytrile does not affect the activity of the metabolizing enzymes of the 3A4 subfamily of the cytochrome P450 system, which are responsible for the metabolism of some narcotic analgesics. The effectiveness of Kitril can be enhanced by the introduction of dexamethasone (820 mg) prior to the start of chemotherapy.

In vitro studies have shown that ketoconazole inhibits the metabolism of Cyril, which suggests the participation of isoenzyme 3A of the cytochrome P450 system. Special studies on the interaction with the means for general anesthesia have not been carried out, but Cytril is well tolerated when administered concurrently with similar drugs and narcotic analgesics.

With the induction of hepatic enzymes with phenobarbital, an increase in the clearance of granisetron (with i / v administration) was observed by about a quarter.

There was no interaction with the simultaneous appointment with benzodiazepines, tranquilizers, anti-ulcer drugs and cytotoxic drugs that cause vomiting.

Dosage and administration

In / in, inside.
