Abstract BACKGROUND: The vascular disrupting agent combretastatin A4 phosphate (CA4P) causes major regression of animal tumours when given as combination therapy. METHODS: Patients with advanced cancer refractory to standard therapy were treated with CA4P as a 10-min infusion, 20 h before carboplatin, paclitaxel, or paclitaxel, followed by carboplatin. RESULTS: Combretastatin A4 phosphate was escalated from 36 to 54 mg m(-2) with the carboplatin area under the concentration curve (AUC) 4-5, from 27 to 54 mg m(-2) with paclitaxel 135-175 mg m(-2), and from 54 to 72 mg m(-2) with carboplatin AUC 5 and paclitaxel 175 mg m(-2). Grade 3 or 4 neutropenia was seen in 17\%, and thrombocytopenia only in 4\% of 46 patients. Grade 1-3 hypertension (26\% of patients) and grade 1-3 tumour pain (65\% of patients) were the most typical non-haematological toxicities. Dose-limiting toxicity of grade 3 hypertension or grade 3 ataxia was seen in two patients at 72 mg m(-2). Responses were seen in 10 of 46 (22\%) patients with ovarian, oesophageal, small-cell lung cancer, and melanoma. CONCLUSION: The combination of CA4P with carboplatin and paclitaxel was well tolerated in the majority of patients with adequate premedication and had antitumour activity in patients who were heavily pretreated.
