Kupffer cells and pit cells are not effective in the defense against experimentally induced colon carcinoma metastasis in rat liver

Abstract

The present study was performed to investigate processes involved in circumvention of the immune system by advanced stages of tumor growth in the liver. The efficacy of Kupffer cells and pit cells against cancer cells was tested in vivo in an experimental model of colon carcinoma metastasis in rat liver. Liver tumors were induced by administration of CC531… (More)
