Twenty-three previously untreated patients with bronchioloalveolar cell lung cancer who had measurable disease and distant metastases (stage IIIM1, extensive) were treated with combination chemotherapy including 5-FU, vincristine, and mitomycin. Two of 23 patients (9%) achieved partial response lasting 5 and 6 months. Two patients (9%) died of sepsis while neutropenic. The current study does not justify the use of 5-FU, vincristine, and mitomycin combination chemotherapy in patients with metastatic bronchioloalveolar cell lung cancer.
