Twenty-two patients with advanced testicular cancer received iproplatin at a dose of 180-240 mg/m2 every 4 weeks. All the patients progressed or recurred after chemotherapy including cisplatin. The most severe toxicity was thrombocytopenia with two toxic deaths after a first cycle of 240 and 180 mg/m2 respectively. Nausea and vomiting were almost universal but mild in intensity. One renal failure occurred 6 weeks after the first cycle while the tumor was progressing. No antitumor activity was observed in this heavily pretreated population of patients.
