Abstract

We have developed a liver metastatic model of human colon cancer using severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice. Liver metastases were observed in all the SCID mice on day 28 after intrasplenic injection with 5 x 106 dissociated tumor cells of COL-2-JCK, a human colon cancer strain serially transplanted in nude mice. When this model was applied for chemotherapeutic experiments, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) demonstrated significant antitumor effects in preventing liver metastases, whereas the efficacy of 5-FU was limited in the currently used sc-ip chemosensitivity assay in nude mice. When the human LDH-5 isozyme was evaluated in the homogenized metastatic liver tissue of SCID mice, a good correlation was obtained between the liver tumor weights and LDH-5 isozyme, suggesting that it could be a promising quantitative indicator for metastases. This model would be useful for further studies on the treatment of liver metastases of colon cancer.
