    ..The main determinant of selectivity is tumour blood flow. The effects of hyperthermia may be augmented by step-down heating, manipulating pH changes and sensitisation by chemotherapy or specific pharmacological agents...

    V Muralidharan
    Department of Surgery, Monash University, Alfred Hospital, Prahran, Australia
    J Gastrointest Surg 5:646-57. 2001

    ..87 +/- 5.60% compared with 48.01 +/- 3.96% in the control group (P = 0.001). These data suggest that tamoxifen has a potent inhibitory action on colorectal liver metastases by exerting an effect on cell proliferation...

    Clin Cancer Res 7:1052-60. 2001
    ..A single dose of CA4P causes major changes of the tumor microvasculature, reduction of tumor blood flow, and increase in tumor necrosis. CA4P has a potential role in the management of patients with liver metastases...
