Administration of the chemotherapeutic agent by organ perfusion is more effective than the systemic administration. The active drug is reached by the tumor, to a higher concentration, and normal tissues are spared from major damages. The perfusion of various areas of the body is a recent goal of the experimental and clinical trials. Fatal malignancies observed in humans occur mainly in the abdominal area of the body, The development of a clinically applicable technique for the perfusion of this area is desirable. This report covers the laboratory studies, carried out in the development of a liver perfusion technique for chemotherapy. The results obtained have allowed us to highlight that, the potential anticancer activity of Citozym, a micronutrients supplement, is likely the result of the inhibition of oxidative stress. This work is the preliminary evidence, of the possible mechanism by which Citozym exerts its antineoplastic activity.
