Single doses of 1-(2-chloroethyl)-3-(trans-4-methylcyclohexyl)-1-nitrosourea caused transient suppression of [3H]thymidine incorporation into DNA in bone marrow and gastrointestinal mucosa and more prolonged inhibition of such incorporation in B16 melanoma. A single dose of 1-(2-chloroethyl) -3- (trans-4-methylcyclohexyl) -1-nitro-sourea, 16 mg/kg, doubled(More)
