PURPOSE: The physical and chemical compatibility of palonosetron with cyclophosphamide and with ifosfamide during simulated Y-site administration was studied. METHODS: Test samples were prepared in triplicate by mixing 7.5 mL of palonosetron hydrochloride 50 microg (of palonosetron) per milliliter with 7.5 mL of cyclophosphamide 10 mg/mL and with ifosfamide 20 mg/mL. Physical stability was assessed by turbidimetry, particle sizing, and visual inspection. Chemical stability was assessed by stability-indicating high-performance liquid chromatography. Evaluations were performed immediately and one and four hours after mixing. RESULTS: The samples were clear and colorless when viewed in normal fluorescent room light and when viewed with a high-intensity monodirectional light. Turbidity remained unchanged, and particulate content was low and exhibited little change. Palonosetron, cyclophosphamide, and ifosfamide remained chemically stable throughout the four-hour test period. CONCLUSION: Palonosetron hydrochloride was physically compatible with cyclophosphamide or ifosfamide during simulated Y-site administration.
