Injection of a homologous series of bacterial core lipopolysaccharides obtained from Salmonella minnesota R mutants to Ehrlich solid tumor-beating mice results in an increase of survival times of treated animals. Lower chain length favors greater antitumor activity. Oligosaccharides and polysaccharides derived from lipopolysaccharides were found to be ineffective in increasing survial time of tumore-bearing mice. Smaller-sugar-chain-length core lipopolysaccharides were found to be better… CONTINUE READING
