Fucoidan (FUC) an immune potentiating material is one of the slimy substances included in sea weeds. Much attention is paid to the pharmacotherapy by the combination of FUC and conventional antitumor drugs. However, it is difficult to achieve high antitumor effect by simple oral administration of FUC, because it cannot be absorbed.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
