Abstract

Forty patients with locally extensive or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus were registered onto a phase II trial employing cisplatin, vinblastine, and mitoguazone. Of 36 eligible patients, four (11%) had partial responses. None had received prior chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Toxicity was mild to moderate and consisted mostly of nausea and vomiting. The activity of this regimen at the doses and schedule used was minimal. More aggressive use of therapy should be considered for further trials.
