  • We have carried out a phase II study of intravenous menogaril given every four weeks in a group of patients with breast cancer who had received no prior chemotherapy for metastatic disease. Myelosuppression, nausea and vomiting and local reactions were seen frequently. Six partial responses (median duration 154 days) were seen in 24 eligible patients. We conclude menogaril is active in breast cancer and recommend that because it can be delivered in high doses orally, future trials in this disease should focus on intense oral schedule.
