The relationships between the administered dose, clearance, and the toxicity spectrum of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) administered as 72-hour constant infusion have been studied in 21 patients with advanced cancer. This was done as a pilot study for possible future combination using 5-FU as a radiosensitizer. Individual patients tolerated up to 65 mg/kg/24 hours,(More)
We have studied 21 patients infused for 72 hours with 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) at progressive doses combined with hyperfractionated radiation. The schedule was chosen as being one capable of inducing 5-FU radiosensitization (RS). All patients were started at a daily 5-FU dose of 40 mg/kg/24 hours; doses were then escalated with each subsequent treatment cycle(More)
Eighteen patients with advanced epithelial cancers of the head and neck region were studied for their tolerance and response to combined cycles of 120-hour infused 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and external-beam radiation therapy. 5-FU infusions were given under conditions where radiosensitization would be expected at the higher infusion doses.
