KEY WORDS antiemesis cisplatin granisetron ABSTRACT Purpose To assess the gelation power of N-palmitoyl L- N-palmitoyl L-alanine organogel alanine derivatives in injectable oils and to use the best chosen organogel as parenteral implant of granisetron for the treat- ment of emesis. ABBREVIATIONS Methods Twelve N-palmitoyl L-alanine derived organogels CGC Critical gelling concentration were developed and evaluated in terms of morphology, ther- DSC Differential scanning calorimetry mal properties and in vivo performance.
