Figure 1: Effect of exogenous supplementation of l-cysteine (Cys) along with adsorbed ascites fluid (ad-AF) treatment on the changes in body weight gain in tumor bearers and treated mice. Animals in each group were transplanted with 1×106 Ehrlich’s ascites tumor cells intraperitoneally (i.p.); Group-I (tumor control) was administered 0.1mL of normal saline, Group-II (tumor experimental) was treated with 0.1mL of ad-AF, whereas Group-III (tumor experimental + Cys) received 0.1mL of ad-AF and Cys (0.1mL) i.p. on alternate days right from the day of tumor transplantation (day 0). Body weight gain of individual animals was recorded and percentage change in the body weight of individual animal was calculated from the initial body weight of animals (day 0). First group of bars represents the body weight gain on 7th day, second group of bars represents the body weight gain on 14th day, and third group of bars represents the body weight gain on 21st day. Values presented here are mean ± standard error (SE) of 10 animals in each group. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.005
