  • The metabolic response of the tumour‐bearing host to methotrexate (MTX) therapy was investigated with particular attention to effects resulting from MTX‐induced anorexia. Biochemical changes in female Dark Agouti rats bearing mammary adenocarcinomas and treated with MTX (0.5 mg/kg. 2 i.m. injections, 24 h apart) were compared with untreated (CON) tumour‐bearing rats, and tumour‐bearing rats pair‐fed (PF) to the MTX group. MTX treatment halted progression of the tumour (tumour 6% of bodyweight… CONTINUE READING
