Transcatheter arterial embolization as a method of cisplatin-retention enhancement on the VX2 tumor uterus transplants


Enhanced cisplatin (Pt) retention using transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TAE) with Gelfoam particles was studied in rabbit uterine tumors. Ten rabbit uteri were inoculated with 5 X 107 cells of VX2 carcinoma. Three to four weeks later cisplatin, 1 mg/kg, was injected, either with (TAE group) or without (IA group) being mixed with small Gelfoam… (More)
