Abstract

Thirty patients with advanced gastric carcinoma were treated with doxorubicin combined with mitomycin; only four (13%) responded. Myelosuppression was the major toxic effect; there was one toxic death. The overall median survival was 14 weeks (range, 2-42), which is no different from that reported for untreated patients. The combination of doxorubicin and mitomycin alone cannot be recommended for use in patients with advanced gastric carcinoma.
