Enhancement of specific antitumor immunity in mice fed a diet enriched in vitamin A acetate.

Abstract

Age-matched male CBA mice on a conventional or a vitamin A acetate (VAOAc)-rich diet were immunized with irradiated cloned 3-methylcholanthrene- or Harvey sarcoma virus-induced (McSa-1 or HT3-2.1) sarcoma cells and then challenged with viable corresponding or unrelated (non-crossreacting) syngeneic sarcoma cells.
