Abstract

Sixteen patients completed an adequate trial of estramustine phosphate for the management of metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Although no patient showed a complete or partial response, 9 (56 per cent) had stabilization of disease for a median of 44 weeks. Toxicity was not severe, but intolerance to the drug may limit its widespread use.
