By Uwe Reinhold, Wolfgang Tilgen

The decade has obvious a renaissance of the concept that of individualized chemotherapy in oncology, markedly encouraged via the improvement of latest in vitro chemosensitivity assays. The scientific application of drug reaction assays has been evaluated in medical trials and the consequences recommend that assay-assisted treatment choice could enhance survival in addition to financial results. This quantity contains the lawsuits of the 1st Symposium of the foreign Society for Chemosensitivity trying out in Oncology, ISCO-1, held in Homburg/Saar, Germany, in September 2001. the subjects comprise: new in vitro drug-testing equipment, tumor chemosensitivity assays, and the scientific relevance of assay-directed remedy.

The chips, associated growth chambers, and tubing can be sterilized with sodium hypochlorite. An important feature of the test system is that the cells are perfused with culture medium, thereby ensuring a continuous supply of nutrients while metabolic waste products are removed. Adherent tumor cell lines LS174T as well as S180 and its doxorubicin-resistant counterpart were used. Cells were trypsinized, seeded on to the chips at 2–4”103 cells/mm2, and precultured under standard conditions in medium (RPMI) with 10% FCS.
