Stimulation of Clonogenic Growth of Tumour Cells and Metastases in the Lungs by Local X-Radiation


Single cell suspensions of two allogeneic tumours (W-256 and Y-P388) injected intravenously produced macrocolonies in the lungs of rats. Colony forming efficiency (CFE, the number of colonies produced by each viable cell injected) was low in 6-week or older rats but was markedly increased by 1000-1500 rad local thoracic irradiation (LTI) given 7-14 days… (More)
