Abstract

We examined the effect of liver damage induced by carbon tetrachloride on the incidence of hepatic metastasis in the Greene hamster melanoma. Nine of 17 animals with liver damage had melanoma growth in the liver after the intraportal vein injection of tumor cells, whereas tumor growth occurred in four of 27 control animals (P 〈 .01). These results suggest that, in this model, liver damage predisposes to metastatic involvement by melanoma.
