Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Diaziquone (AZQ) is a lipid soluble alkylating agent which was designed for increased CNS penetration. Its principle toxicity is myelosuppression. We conducted a phase I trial using AZQ in combination with GM-CSF to determine if the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) of AZQ could be escalated. Using GM-CSF on a standard schedule, we were unable to escalate the previously determined MTD of diaziquone with the use of this colony stimulating factor.
