Growth and regrowth of an autogenous rat sarcoma: effects of nitrogen mustard.

Immediate and delayed effects of nitrogen mustard (HN2) (0.1 mg/kg/day for 4 days) on the growth and cell proliferation patterns of the 3-methylcholanthrene-induced autogenous rat sarcoma were studied. Tumor cells were labeled continuously with 0.5 muCi tritiated thymidine/g for 24 hours. The labeling index fell from 36.4 to 14.0% and the mitotic index from… CONTINUE READING
