The chemosensitivity of 26 non-pretreated colorectal carcinomas (primary tumors and/or colorectal metastases) was studied by an in vitro antimetabolic assay, which evaluates the interference of drugs on the incorporation of 3H-thymidine and 3H-uridine in short-term cultures of human tumors. Our results correlate with the response rate obtained in clinical(More)
