Cell kinetics studies of human brain tumors by in vitro labeling using anti-BUdR monoclonal antibody.


Since the development of a specific monoclonal antibody against the thymidine analogue bromodeoxyuridine (BUdR), many investigators have used intravenous infusion of BUdR to estimate the proliferative potential of human brain tumors. However, side effects such as the induction of cell mutation, latent virus promotion, or inhibition of cytodifferentiation… (More)
