The effect of a widely used trace element preparation (Beres-Drop Plus, BDP) on the liver metastasis forming potential of 3LL-HH tumor was studied. The daily, oral administration of BDP caused a decrease in the number of liver metastases, irrespective of the presence or absence of the primary spleen tumor. It is suggested, that the zinc component of BDP is responsible, at least partly--for the inhibitory action.
