Abstract

Fifteen patients with bronchial carcinoma were treated with infusions of 10 mg Mitomycin C (MMC) in the bronchial artery feeding the tumor. The treatment was repeated three times with 2-3 weeks interval between treatments. Half of the patients then received radiation to the tumor area and mediastinum. All tumors decreased in size, complete remission occurred in two and partial remission in five patients. Survival time, however, was not prolonged and esophageal complications occurred in several patients.
