A marked difference in sensitivity to the direct effect of the polysaccharide levan on tumour cells was observed between two variants of malignancy of Lewis lung carcinoma: cells of the more malignant variant (3LL-M) were much more sensitive to the drug than those of the less malignant tumour (3LL). A gradual decrease in tumorigenicity following preincubation with increasing levan concentrations was observed with both variants, but statistically significant inhibition was observed at lower… CONTINUE READING
