[The treatment of acute myelocytic leukemia during the first recurrence by means of a new cytostatic combination].

[Article in German]


Fifteen patients with acute myeloic leukemia in the first relapse following initial therapy were treated with a combination of adriamycin, vincristine, 6-thioguanine and the new podophyllotoxin derivative VP 16-213. Complete remission was obtained in 3 cases and partial remission in 3 further patients. The combination was generally well tolerated. These preliminary results are compared with those available in the relatively meagre literature. The study is being continued.
