Abstract

The proliferative activity of intracerebrally implanted rat glioma C6 (RG-C6) tumors in rats was exam ined by means of 3H-thymidine autoradiography and measurement of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) uptake. The effect of intracarotid hyperosmolar mannitol on the cell kinetics of the RG-C6 tumors was studied by the latter method. The labeling index (LI) and distribution of 3H-thymidine-labeled cells were identical to those of the BrdU-labeled cells. The LIs of BrdU-labeled cells were not altered by in tracarotid mannitol injection. The influence of intracarotid hyperosmolar mannitol infusion not only on brain tumors but also on normal brain tissue is discussed.
