Effect of bicarbonate, DCA and DB treatments on primary tumor growth. Growth rates of primary tumors are expressed in mm3/time (days). Plots indicate none of the treatments exhibited a measurable effect on primary tumor growth at the beginning of the study (A) or from the time of the tumor resections to study termination (B). Error bars are expressed as SEM. Two-tailed, unpaired t-test, between these groups yielded a p > 0.9.
