We used mitoguazone (500 mg/m 2 iv weekly, with 50-mg/m 2 escalations weekly as tolerated) to treat 22 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck which recurred after initial therapy. Nine of 22 (41%) patients responded: two had complete responses and seven had partial responses. Gastrointestinal toxicity and anemia were commonly seen. We conclude that mitoguazone is active in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and should be incorporated into phase III trials.
