Twenty patients have received 21 courses of high-dose cyclophosphamide (6 g/m2 over 4 days), etoposide (1,800 mg/m2 over 3 days), and carboplatin (800 to 1,600 mg/m2 by continuous infusion over 96 hours) and autologous bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell rescue. The maximum tolerated dose of this regimen included these doses of cyclophosphamide and etoposide with a total of 1,600 mg/m2 carboplatin. Acute renal failure was the dose-limiting toxicity and, at the maximum tolerated dose, was observed in two patients of 14 evaluable courses. Nonhematologic toxicity was otherwise modest, and the overall response rate was 70% in patients with a wide variety of solid and hematologic neoplasms.
