Chemosensitivity of micrometastases and circulating tumor cells to uracil and tegafur as evaluated using LacZ gene-tagged Lewis lung carcinoma cell.


The chemosensitivity of the sequence of steps responsible for metastasis formation including circulating tumor cells and micrometastases to a 5-fluorouracil derivative (UFT) was examined with a novel micrometastasis model featuring Lewis lung carcinoma cells tagged with the bacterial LacZ gene and hygromycinR gene (hygR). Metastases in the lung could be… (More)
