In a previous report athymic rats carrying transplanted human colonic tumours from cell line LS 174T in both hind legs were injected intra-arterially (i.a.) with 125I-labelled anti-carcinoembryonic (anti-CEA) monoclonal antibodies. The i.a. injection was given on one side bearing a tumour in each rat, while the contralateral tumour served as an 'intravenous' control. In the same experimental model and treated in the same way, 10 rats were injected i.a. with anti-CEA monoclonal antibodies after an i.a. mannitol infusion. In both groups of rats external gamma measurements were performed daily for four days. On the fourth day the rats were killed and pieces of the tumours and of various organs were weighed and the activity was determined with a gamma-counter. The tumour uptake of antibodies was significantly enhanced after mannitol infusion.
