Abstract

Catrix-S is an acidic mucopolysaccharide complex derived from bovine tracheal cartilage. This material was administered by weekly subcutaneous injection (5.0-7.5 g/week) to nine patients with progressive metastatic malignancy. One complete response was seen in a patient with metastatic renal cell carcinoma to the lungs. Eight patients had progression of their disease. No undue toxicity and no consistent immunologic alteration was noted.
