Based on previous reports suggesting that an intravenous (i.v.) continuous infusion of alkylating agents produced a significant response rate in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a phase I trial of ifosfamide/mesna (IFO/MES) was conducted in 11 adult patients with relapsed ALL. IFO/MES were administered as a 24-h i.v. continuous infusion in doses ranging(More)
We have performed a phase II study to evaluate the activity and toxicity of ifosfamide and cisplatin as first-line treatment for advanced ovarian cancer.
