PURPOSE Despite evidence that regional chemotherapy improves the treatment of metastatic peritoneal ovarian carcinoma, monoclonal antibodies have not shown significant success in i.p. delivery. The present study was designed to address the hypothesis that convective penetration of macromolecular antineoplastic agents depends on a positive pressure difference between the i.p. therapeutic solution and the tumor. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Nude rats with human ovarian xenografts implanted in the… CONTINUE READING
