The EORTC Soft Tissue and Bone Sarcoma Group has conducted a phase II trial in 33 eligible patients with metastatic soft tissue sarcoma with nimustine 100 mg/m2 every 6 weeks. In 31 evaluable patients there were 3 (10%) partial responses lasting 4.5, 6 and 7.5 months, and 5 cases of stable disease. 12 patients had progressive disease and 11 patients early progressive disease. Toxicity consisted mainly of leukopenia and thrombocytopenia and nausea and vomiting. It is concluded that nimustine has only minor activity in soft tissue sarcoma.
