A melphalan-resistant human rhabdomyosarcoma xenograft, TE-671 MR, was established in athymic mice by serial melphalan treatment of the parent xenograft, TE-671, at the 10% lethal dosage (LD10); significant resistance was evident after ten passages of the tumor. TE-671 MR demonstrated a doubling time of 3.5 days and a latency period to 1000-mm3 tumors of(More)
Investigations with the melphalan-resistant human rhabdomyosarcoma xenograft TE-671 MR were carried out to identify patterns of cross-resistance and collateral sensitivity and to define the mechanism(s) mediating melphalan resistance. TE-671 MR was cross-resistant to thio-TEPA, mitomycin, vincristine, and cisplatin, and partially resistant to chlorambucil(More)
Based on previous work demonstrating the activity of cyclophosphamide and melphalan in a series of human medulloblastoma and rhabdomyosarcoma cell lines and transplantable xenografts, investigations were conducted to define the effects of combining cyclophosphamide or melphalan with VP-16. These studies demonstrated a synergistic interaction between(More)
