Description

The effect of several novel silatrane derivatives on the growth of syngeneic renal cell carcinoma (RENCA) in BALB/c mice and the survival rate of the animals were evaluated. The RENCA-bearing animals were treated subcutaneously and weekly with either a water-insoluble or a water-soluble derivative. The silatrane-treated animals were either free of palpable tumors or developed tumors much more slowly in comparison with the control animals without silatranes. The treated animals as a whole also died of tumor at much slower rates. Attempts to use higher silatrane dosages to achieve better curative effects were hampered by the toxicity of these compounds.
