The in vitro cytotoxicities of the four drugs most frequently used for intravesical chemotherapy (Adriamycin, epodyl, mitomycin C, Thiotepa) and epirubicin were compared using monolayers and multicellular tumor spheroids of the human bladder cancer cell line, MGH-U1. Adriamycin and epirubicin were most cytotoxic against monolayer cultures, whereas mitomycin C killed more cells in spheroids. Epodyl was least cytotoxic against both two- and three-dimensional cultures. Thiotepa was the only drug… CONTINUE READING
