The aim of the study was to evaluate the in vitro cytototoxicity of diluted povidone iodine on colon cancer cells and its in vivo antitumoral effect in a model of peritoneal carcinomatosis in the rat.
Cell cytotoxicity of a povidone iodine diluted solution was assessed, in vitro, on rat colon cancer cells (DHD/K12/PROb) and human colon cancer cells (HT29). The antitumoral effect of diluted povidone iodine washing was measured in BDIX rats after the intraperitoneal inoculation of 10(6) DHD/K12/PROb cells. Results were compared to an abdominal washing within a 9 g/l salinel solution. In one experiment, peritoneal scars and a colocolic anastomosis were performed after the injection of cancer cells.
A short 10 min incubation of human and rat colon cancer cells with diluted povidone iodine resulted in a complete cell killing. In animals, a peritoneal washing with 1% diluted povidone iodine completely inhibited the tumor growth in parietal peritoneum. However, development of peritoneal tumor nodules was not inhibited in the omentum, in scarified peritoneum or in intestinal anastomosis.
Despite its high in vitro efficacy, diluted povidone iodine has an incomplete effect in the prevention of peritoneal carcinomatosis, with only a partial inhibition in scarred peritoneum epiploïc area and intestinal anastomosis. In contrary, it procures a complete inhibition of tumor growth in normal peritoneum.

    • "Other studies have shown the influence of cancer cell line–host selection in macroscopic metastasis models. As the initial work by Martin et al. (1983), further work by Benoit et al. (2000, 2006), Favoulet et al. (2002) (2004) and Mezhir et al. (2006) have shown that DHDK12 colonic cancer introduced into immunocompetent BDIX rats produces macroscopic metastases. Mezhir et al. (2006) introduced DHDK12 cells into BDIX rats using an intrasplenic injection. "

    ABSTRACT: At diagnosis of colorectal cancer, approximately 25% of the patients have established colorectal liver metastasis. Optimal management of disseminated disease requires therapies targeting multiple stages in hepatic colorectal cancer metastasis development. To facilitate this, biologically accurate in vivo models are required. Early colonic cancer liver metastases development was studied using BDIX and Sprague-Dawley rat strains with human HT29 and rat DHDK12 colonic cancer cell lines. Different cancer cell-host combinations were used. Rat DHDK12 was previously chemically induced in the BDIX rat. Real-time intra-vital microscopy was employed to analyse the early development of liver metastases in four groups (n = 6 per group) (HT29-BDIX, DHDK12-BDIX, HT29-SD and DHDK12-SD). Data were compared using one-way anova with Bonferroni's multiple comparison test. The total number of tumour cells visualized, adherent cells within the hepatic sinusoids, extravasated tumour cells and migration rates were significantly higher in the DHDK12-BDIX combination. Maximum number of visualized cells and maximum migration rate were also significantly higher in this group. No significant differences were observed in these experimental parameters among the other three groups or in the haemodynamic parameters among all groups. In conclusion, cancer cell line-host selection has a significant effect on early colonic cancer liver metastasis development.

    ABSTRACT: Spontaneous or iatrogenous peritoneal seeding is responsible for locoregional recurrent cancer or peritoneal carcinomatosis. Few surgeons are used to wash the abdominal cavity to prevent peritoneal seeding. But experimentally, washing is not able to dislodge or destroy tumour cells adherent to the peritoneum or to the surgical wounds. The antitumoral effect of abdominal washing is increased by addition of antiseptics or anti-adherent agents.
