A squamous cell carcinoma (ASB XIII) and a large cell carcinoma (ASB XIV) induced from mouse lung cells by chrysotile asbestos were established in serial transplant in BALB/c mice. New hosts were treated with retinoids by ip injection at 10 mg/kg 5 days/week. Growth inhibition of ASB XIII was 58%-64% (P less than 0.005) after treatments with all-trans(More)
Asbestos-induced peritoneal mesothelioma 10-24 serially transplanted in Syrian golden hamsters was used to test responses to seven drugs as single agents. Compared to saline-treated controls, the average survival time increased 51%-85% with azactitidine, 42%-60% with aziridinylbenzoquinone, 43% with cisplatin, and 35%-45% with PCNU. No cures were achieved.(More)
Chemotherapy trials were run with mice bearing transplants of carcinomas originally induced from fetal mouse lung cells by asbestos. After treatments with a nitrosourea (PCNU), mice bearing transplants of a large-cell carcinoma (ASB XIV) had complete remissions (CR) in 13 of 20 animals on a 15 mg/kg regimen, in 6 of 20 on an 8 mg/kg regimen, and in none of(More)
A peritoneal mesothelioma was induced by asbestos in a hamster, and was established in serial transfer to new hosts by injection of peritoneal effusion containing tumor cells. Biologically and histopathologically, this tumor is similar to its human counterpart. Three drugs were tested for efficacy using this model. Survival time was used as the only(More)
