Twenty-three ovarian cancer patients refractory to first-line chemotherapy consisting of cis-dichlorodiamminoplatinum used as a single agent (50 mg/m2 IV every 4 weeks) were admitted to this study. They received cyclophosphamide as an IV push at a dose of 1 g/m2 every 3 weeks. They were evaluable for response after at least two cycles. None of the 18 evaluable patients responded: 15 (83%) showed rapid progression and three (17%) no change. Except in one case of severe leukopenia hematological toxicity was acceptable. Some (30%) of the patients experienced intractable vomiting on the day of cyclophosphamide administration.
