Nineteen pregnant female rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) received 1 mg/day diethylstilbestrol (DES) over three time periods during gestation: day 21 to delivery (group I), day 100 to delivery (group II) and day 130 to delivery (group III). Seven females and five males of a total of 20 offspring are presently alive at 5 1/2 years of age; one female died at 5(More)
Seventeen patients with intraperitoneal tumors were treated by 4-hour intraperitoneal dialysis with cisplatin alone, or in combination with an intravenous neutralizing agent, sodium thiosulfate. Cisplatin alone, 90 mg/m2 body surface area intraperitoneally, produced nephrotoxicity. When intraperitoneal cisplatin therapy was combined with intravenous(More)
We administered cisplatin and etoposide by peritoneal dialysis to 39 patients with i.p. malignancies in order to investigate the toxicity, pharmacokinetics, and clinical activity of this 2-drug combination. All patients received i.v. sodium thiosulfate concurrently with the i.p. chemotherapy. Myelosuppression, nausea, vomiting, and malaise were the primary(More)
Thirty-one patients with refractory ovarian cancer and other malignancies principally confined to the abdominal cavity were treated with an intraperitoneal combination-chemotherapy regimen consisting of cisplatin (100 to 200 mg/m2), cytosine arabinoside (10(-4) to 10(-3) mol/L) and doxorubicin (2 to 18 mumol/L). Sodium thiosulfate was simultaneously(More)
Serum 17 beta-estradiol (E2) and estrone (E1) levels were measured before and 6-8 weeks after ovariectomy in 16 postmenopausal women with endometrial cancer, and in 10 postmenopausal women with normal endometrium (preovariectomy only). For E2, no significant difference in the mean baseline (+/-SE) level was found between the tumor (13.5 +/- 1.1 pg/ml) and(More)
The results of modeling studies have suggested and clinical investigations have confirmed a major pharmacokinetic advantage for exposure of the peritoneal cavity to certain chemotherapeutic agents compared with exposure of the systemic circulation when these drugs are delivered through the intraperitoneal route. Objective antitumor responses and significant(More)
Ninety ovarian carcinoma patients failing primary intravenous (IV) combination chemotherapy were treated with cisplatin-based combination intraperitoneal therapy. Sixty-five patients had residual disease greater than 2 cm at the start of intraperitoneal therapy. Their median survival was 8 months. Twenty-five patients had disease less than 2 cm; their(More)
