Abstract

This and other laboratories have carried out extensive studies on cancer cells in vitro by a variety of methods to assess their sensitivity to anticancer agents. In previous investigations, we explored the sensitivity of biopsies obtained from two experimental tumors, kept in different culture conditions (1) and the correlation between in vitro activity and in vivo response to several drugs, (2,3).
