To study the effect of of percutaneous para-toluenesulfonamide (PTS) injection on transplanted hepatocarcinoma in nude mice. Sixty nude mice with subcutaneous transplanted hepatocarcinoma were randomized into 6 groups, namely PTS, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, PTS+chemotherapy, PTS+radiotherapy and control groups. PTS were injected into the tumor in the nude mouse models as indicated, and the tumor growth rate and survival time of the mice were recorded. All the treatments resulted in effective arrest of the tumor growth, but the effects of PTS+chemotherapy and PTS+radiotherapy were more obvious. No significant difference in the survival time of the mice were noted between the groups. PTS+chemotherapy and PTS+radiotherapy are safe and reliable, and produces better effects than either radiotherapy or chemotherapy alone.
