All clinical studies in the English literature from 1976 to mid-1987 that address drug management of refractory or relapsed ANLL are reviewed and summarized. We conclude that, although many regimens may induce a CR, none is clearly superior. New drugs and or drug combinations must be sought if treatment outcomes are to be substantially improved. At present it appears that combination chemotherapy with VP-16 has not been extensively studied and may be active in non-cross-resistant regimens.
