An inverse relationship between the growth rate of human melanoma xenografts and their response to some cytostatic drugs.


HUMAN CANC(ERS differ widely in response to chemotherapeutic agents. This is the case for different tumours within one histological group as well as for different tumour types. Thus, rapidly growing acute leukaemias and lymphomas generally respond better to cytostatic agents than more slowly growing tumours, such as squamous cell and adenocarcinomas (Zubrod… (More)
