Biochemical modulation of bolus fluorouracil by PALA in patients with advanced colorectal cancer
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
The observed response rate, median survival, and toxicity in this study are similar to those obtained with PALA plus infusional FU and with other methods of FU modulation. Larger phase III studies are needed to compare bolus FU/PALA regimens with other PALA and non-PALA-containing combinations. Our future focus will be attenuate this regimen's toxicity while maintaining or improving its response rates and survival.
