Twenty-six evaluable patients with advanced or recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix were treated with mitoxantrone at a dosage of 12 mg/m2 every 3 weeks. Twenty-five of 26 patients had had prior irradiation and 24 prior chemotherapy. There were two partial responses, one in a patient with pelvic recurrence and another in a patient with a right upper quadrant mass. Progression-free intervals for these two patients were 5.1 and 4.6 months, respectively. Toxicity was moderate and consisted mainly of leukopenia. No septic or bleeding complications were observed. Mitoxantrone is minimally active in patients with advanced cervical cancer who have been previously treated.
