dc.description.abstractIn this Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) phase II study, dibromodulcitol (DBD) and a combination of actinomycin D, hydroxyurea, and cyclophosphamide (AHC) were compared with methyl-CCNU, the current ECOG standard, in patients who had received no prior chemotherapy for disseminated malignant melanoma. The response rates were 6% (3/50) for AHC, 9% (3/34) for DBD, and 14% (7/49) for methyl-CCNU. Median survival times were 4, 5, and 6 months, respectively. Neither regimen appears to offer any advantage over methyl-CCNU as front-line therapy for patients with disseminated melanoma.
