In this study 22 patients with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the cervix were treated with a weekly bolus injection of 4'-epidoxorubicin at a dose of 12 mg/m2. Seventeen patients had received prior radiotherapy, all patients were chemo-naive. Toxicity was generally absent or very mild. One patient had a complete response and 2 patients had a partial response, one was an unconfirmed partial response, giving a response rate of 14%. Six patients had stable disease. The median progression-free survival and overall survival was 2.8 months and 6.1 months, respectively. In conclusion, 4'-epidoxorubicin used at this dosage and schedule has minimal activity in metastatic adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
