Abstract

BACKGROUND: The goals of this study of a hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) regimen of alternating floxuridine and 5-fluorouracil were to evaluate the treatment-related toxic effects, the antitumor response rate, and patient survival. METHODS: Fifty-seven consecutive patients were treated with implanted HAI pumps and received a regimen of alternating floxuridine (0.1 mg/kg/day continuous HAI for 7 days) followed by a weekly HAI pump bolus of 5-fluorouracil (15 mg/kg for 3 weeks). Any changes in treatment plan because of toxicity, antitumor response, and survival were recorded. RESULTS: Thirty- one (54.4%) patients responded to this HAI regimen; 14 (24.5%) patients had stable disease, and 12 (21.1%) progressed during treatment. Responders or patients with stable disease had a significantly (P
