Tumor recurrence is often seen at sites where the peritoneum has been injured during surgery for gastrointestinal malignancies. It is thought that malignant cells released from the tumor during surgery implant in the sites of injury in the abdominal wall and cause tumor recurrence. Here we use dextran sulfate (DS) as an antagonist to cell adhesion for(More)
Intraperitoneal dextran sulfate with a mean molecular weight of 5 x 10(5) has been developed for use in an anti-adherent therapy against peritoneal carcinomatosis. The present study examined acute toxicity of i.p. injection of dextran sulfate in mice and rabbits. The 10, 50 and 90% lethal dose values are 0.213 (0.146-0.252), 0.336 (0.291-0.405) and 0.530(More)
We previously performed a global analysis of the gene expression of gastric cancer cell lines established from metastases to the peritoneal cavity with the cDNA microarray method, which made it possible to analyse the expression of approximately 21168 genes for the identification of novel markers for the detection of micrometastases in the peritoneal(More)
We previously developed a new formulation of methotrexate (MTX) that is adsorbed onto a suspension of activated carbon particles (MTX-CH) and reported the usefulness of local administration in murine tumors. The present study examines the effects of human colon carcinoma (LoVo) xenografts and the acute toxicity of MTX-CH compared with MTX aqueous solution(More)
Peritoneal recurrence is one of the critical problems that occurs after surgery for gastrointestinal cancers. Since no curative treatment has been established for peritoneal recurrence, many efforts have been made to develop an effective method for preventing such recurrence. We focused on dextran sulfate, an anti-cell-adherence agent, to prevent peritoneal(More)
We developed a new dosage formulation, methotrexate bound to activated carbon particles (MTX-CH), and used it to reduce tumors via its long-acting effect at the administration sites. MTX-CH was injected locally into tumors on the back of BALB/c mice, 30 mg/mouse, as MTX and compared with mice treated with MTX aqueous solution, saline solution, activated(More)
Although peritoneal cancer metastasis has the highest frequency of postoperative recurrence among digestive organ malignant tumors, there is no still decisive treatment. Dextran sulfate (DS) as a prophylaxis for cancer metastasis was examined with respect to its effect on cultured cells. DS was made to act on a strong adhesive neoplasm cell, and the action(More)
With the aim of preventing cancer cells from becoming detached and spreading into the abdominal cavity by operative procedures during surgical resection of cancer infiltrating into gastrointestinal serosa, the exposed area of the serosa in mice was coated with fibrin glue, a biological tissue adhesive, prior to resection. We then determined whether the(More)
