Domperidone Expanded Access Program for Oncology Patients With Gastroparesis Who Have Failed Standard Therapy

The purpose of this study is to provide oral Domperidone offered under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expanded access program, to patients that, based on the treating doctor's assessment, could benefit from , a prokinetic effect for the relief of refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease with upper gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, gastroparesis, and chronic constipation.
