Abstract

The effect of hepatic irradiation on adriamycin toxicity and pharmacokinetics was studied in 10 children who received adriamycin with concurrent abdominal irradiation for Wilms' tumor. Hepatic irradiation to 2400-2700 rad at 100-150 rad per fraction did not alter the clinical toxicity or plasma pharmacokinetics of adriamycin.
