Abstract The effects of N-(2-hydroxyethyl) palmitamide (PEA) a natural and antitoxic substance on the treatment of RBA rat leukemia were studied. Repeated administration of PEA prolonged substantially survival of leukemic animals in the course of the treatment with cis-diamminedichlor-platinum (cis-Pt(II) in combination with cyclophosphamide, vincristine and methotrexate respectively. The most advantageous combination used was the cis-Pt(II) with methotrexate and PEA administration even improved the treatment results. The long-termed PEA treatment depressed first of all undesirable side effects and enabled to use higher therapeutic dosage of chemotherapeutics and improved the final results.
