- Assess the response rate of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma treated with gemcitabine and cisplatin.
- Assess toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15 and cisplatin IV over 60 minutes on day 15. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
