Part of the Recent Results in Cancer Research book series (RECENTCANCER, volume 33)


The role of L-asparaginase in the chemotherapy of cancer and the possible mechanism of action of this enzyme in the control of growth of lymphomatous cells has been the subject of numerous presentations at this symposium. The purpose of this report is to describe an automated method for the assay of L-asparaginase and to present data concerning the distribution and clearance of administered L-asparaginase.
