Combination chemotherapy of hepatocellular cancer. Comparison of adriamycin + VM 26 + 5-fluorouracil with mAMSA + VM 26 + 5-fluorouracil.

Abstract

Forty-seven patients with hepatocellular cancer were treated in a randomised trial comparing adriamycin + VM 26 + 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) to mAMSA + VM 26 + 5-FU. Thirteen patients had a partial response to treatment (28%) and another 6 (13%) showed disease stabilisation. There were no significant differences in the response rates between the two treatment regimens. Patients who responded to treatment showed significant prolongation of survival (48 weeks) when compared to non-responders (5 weeks).
