Retinoic acid: Enhancement of a tumor and inhibition of interferon’s antitumor action

Academic Article


  • The effect of frans-retinoic acid on the growth of P388 lymphoid tumors in inbred female DBA/2 mice in the presence or absence of interferon (IFN) treatment was studied. This acid derivative of vitamin A enhanced local tumor growth, transRetinoic acid also partially reversed IFN protection against tumor growth and mortality. © 1981 OUP Publishing Ltd.
