Edatrexate is an analog of methotrexate which in vitro demonstrated activity against human colon cancer xenografts grown in nude mice. In a phase II trial, 12 patients with metastatic colorectal cancer and no prior chemotherapy were treated with Edatrexate 80 mg/m2/week for an initial period of 8 weeks. No objective responses were observed. Edatrexate is inactive against colon cancer at the dose and schedule used in this trial.
