The fibrinolytic activity of cancer cells has been repeatedly implicated in mechanisms of local spread and tumour invasiveness. Mononuclear phagocytes associated with solid tumours might also contribute to fibrin dissolution at the tumour/host interface through the expression of plasminogen activator (PA) activity. We have investigated the PA activity of(More)
In this study DMSO (dimethylsulphoxide) was used as a tool to test the significance ofin vitro modifications of procoagulant and fibrinolytic activity of tumor cells for theirin vivo metastatic ability. Bl6 melanoma cells were chosen as the experimental model. After four days' treatment DMSO increased both the procoagulant and fibrinolytic (plasminogen(More)
