Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Forty-five patients with non-small cell lung cancer were treated in a phase II trial with menogaril 200 mg/m2 IV every twenty-eight days by a one-hour infusion. One partial response was noted while twenty-two patients had stable disease (51 %). Progressive disease was noted in the remaining twenty-two patients. There was one fatal complication due to pancytopenia and pneumonia. Otherwise, the drug was reasonably well tolerated. At this dosage and schedule, menogaril has no substantial anti-tumor activity for patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
