Mean arterial blood pressure and tumor weight is not affected by treatment with STI-571

Values are mean ± SE. Mean arterial blood pressure (MABP) was measured in a separate study of tumor-bearing rats treated for 4 days with STI-571 (n = 7) or with vehicle alone (n = 8). Tumor weight was determined after final measurement of tumor IFP on rats treated with STI-571 (n = 11) or vehicle alone (n = 10).
TreatmentPBSSTI-571
MABP (mm Hg)98 ± 693 ± 8a
Tumor weight (g)2.6 ± 0.62.5 ± 0.3a
  • a No significant difference.
