A mechanism that would explain the interaction between distinct HCC cells and the liver-specific environment could involve the proliferation of tumor cells differentially expressing certain growth factor receptors and their response to liver-specific paracrine growth factors or organ-repair factors. Indeed, highly metastatic HCC cells from Dukes' stage D or surgical specimens of liver metastases respond to mitogens associated with liver regeneration induced by hepatectomy in nude mice [58, 100].

Ability ofHCC to produce metastasis in the livers of nude mice. 0 as compared with only 14% of KM 12C cells, indicating a higher proportion of metastatic cells carried extra copies of chromosome 7. Gains of as many as 10 copies of particular chromosomes have been reported by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) analyses in other solid tumors [254, 288]. Dukes' stage C HCC often exhibit additions of chromosomes 8 and 12 and a loss of chromosome 17 [129, 254, 288]. The correlation between chromosome copy number and the potential ofHCC cells to produce liver metastasis may be direct and specific or indirect and nonspecific.

Once implanted into the subcutis of syngeneic mice, tumor cells from lung metastases produced tumors that were sensitive to DXR. c. ) and grew in the lung parenchyma as metastases. Levels of mdr-1 mRNAspecific transcripts and P-gp were directly associated with the drug-resistant phenotype in these experiments. The Pgp antagonist verapamil could reverse this resistance to DXR[44]. In summary, these analyses illustrate that DXR sensitivity in colon cancer cells implanted into different organ sites in nude mice was modulated by the different organ environments.
