The efficacy of the radioactive Y2O3 microspheres against VX2 tumors transplanted into rabbit liver was investigated. VX2 tumors were transplanted into a liver of Japanese white rabbit. The median maximum diameter of the tumor with radioactive Y2O3 microsphere infusion group was significantly smaller than those in control group. The results show that infusion of radioactive Y2O3 microspheres remarkably suppresses the growth of VX2 tumor transplanted into rabbit liver, suggesting that the radioactive Y2O3 microsphere is effective for treatment of cancer.
