Alpha-interferon and oral fluorouracil in the treatment of unremovable and/or metastatic renal cancer.

Abstract

We present the results obtained in a study of the pharmacological action (phase II) of alpha-interferon and oral fluorouracyl administered in our 2-year study (Feb. 1988-Feb. 1990) in 10 patients suffering from surgically unremovable or metastatic renal cancer. Our results were: 1 patient with complete regression of lung metastasis; 5 with progressive disease within 3-4 months from beginning of treatment and 2 deaths with stable disease after 4-5 months. Two patients abandoned treatment and their disease progressed within 4-5 months.
