Attempts to persuade survival of sufferers with colorectal melanoma (CRC) by means of adjuvant chemotherapy are restricted via the range of survival in several prognostic teams [4] and the paucity of gear that experience proven job within the complicated affliction [10]. Of the few medicines that are lively within the complex sickness, merely 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and razoxane «±1,2-bis(3,4-dioxopiperazin-1-yl)propane) are appropriate for long term adjuvant remedy [2, 9]. 5-FU has been largely and intensively studied as adjuvant chemotherapy in CRC [7], yet there is not any unanimity that it has even the marginal effect on survival that has been claimed [3, 10]. Razoxane has no longer formerly been confirmed for adjuvant or upkeep therapy in CRC. It has in spite of the fact that a few organic actions that may be idea beneficial within the remedy of residual or minimum tumours [1] and which would for this reason make it beneficial as an adjuvant. hence it particularly prevents tumour dissemination and metastases in a few tumours and normalizes the neovasculature which the tumours set off [6, eight, 11]. The drug isn't really cytotoxic within the ordinary feel, doesn't impact non-dividing cells, and purely blocks phone department in the course of a quick interval of the mobilephone cycle in past due G and/or early mitosis [12]. It does so non-selectively and so much cells able to 2 department tested up to now were plagued by the drug. Even affected cells despite the fact that aren't destroyed instantly, yet could elevate in dimension and turn into multinucleate [5].

When we compared the reactivity of patients to tumor cells without neuraminidase of the first and second immunization procedures (Table 6), we found a percentage increase: 5% reacted to 1 x 105 cells in the first immunization compared to 21 % in the second, and the reaction to 1 x 106 cells increased from 20%- 64%. Higher concentrations resulted in 100% reactivity in all patients tested. Although not all patients have yet received a second chessboard vaccination, it appears that the response to tumor cells is boosted by exposure to tumor cells plus neuraminidase.
