Cell kinetics of cancers have been described in books, texts and other reports, but the correlation with action mechanism of antineoplastic agents has rarely been mentioned in the literature. The action mechanism of the antineoplastic agents such as interferon, ACNU and cisplatin was analyzed with use of propidium iodide and BrdU double staining by flow cytometer. Interferon showed S phase accumulation, ACNU and cisplatin blocked the stage of G(2)M phase. Flow cytometry was useful for the… CONTINUE READING
