We previously showed that fenretinide (4-HPR), a synthetic derivative of all-traits retinoic acid (RA), is effective in mice bearing the human ovarian carcinoma IGROV-1 and it significantly enhances the antitumour activity of cisplatin on the same tumour. The present study examined the therapeutic effects of the combination of 4-HPR and RA and of the two retinoids with cisplatin as intracavitary treatments of mice bearing IGROV-1 and IGROV-1/cisplatin tumours, the latter derived from a sub-line… CONTINUE READING
