Colorectal carcinoma is the second most common cancer in the Western World and its geographical variation in incidence implicates environmental factors as major causative agents. This raises the possibility of identifying the carcinogens and/or tumour promotors concerned and by neutralising or eliminating them from the diet, reduce the cancer incidence. Human colorectal carcinoma cell lines, which are tumorigenic in athymic nude mice can be readily established in vitro (Fogh et al., 1977… CONTINUE READING
