The activity of the novel anticancer agent diethyl 1-3-(chloroethyl)-3-nitrosoureido ethyl phosphonate (S10036) was investigated on several rodent tumors. S10036 showed a good efficacy, comparable to that of the anticancer agent BCNU, against i.p. transplanted P388 and L1210 leukemias. S10036 was very effective against the primary tumor and metastases of i.m. transplanted M5076 reticular cell sarcoma of the mouse and against subline A of the Walker carcinoma of the rat. It was inactive against rodent tumors resistant to BCNU such as L1210/BCNU, ICIG-Ci4 murine fibrosarcoma and the Walker carcinoma subline B in the rat.
