Forty eight patients received vincristine and bleomycin given in sequential combination. Of 32 evaluable patients, nine had a partial response (28%) including four of 15 with lung cancer (27%) and three of nine with head and neck cancer (33%). The results of sequential combination therapy in lung cancer appear to be superior to those previously reported for bleomycin alone. Toxicity of the combination was no greater than that expected of each agent. There was no significant myelosuppression.
