In experimental studies, the intraperitoneal administration of heparin has been shown to attenuate cancer growth, reduce the formation of postoperative adhesions and possess immunomodulatory properties of oncological benefit for peritoneal carcinomatosis of colorectal cancer origin. Combined with data suggesting that the intraperitoneal administration of heparin can reduce the permeability and increase the ultrafiltration of the peritoneal membrane, we hypothesize that intraperitoneally… CONTINUE READING
