The anticarcinogenic effects of bioginseng and two germanium-selective drugs produced by cultivating cells of ginseng radix (Panax ginseng C. A. Mey) in a conventional medium or in media containing organogermanium compounds were studied. Squamous-cell carcinomas of the uterus cervix and vagina were induced by intravaginal applications of 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene in mice. The drugs of ginseng were used orally or intravaginally during a long period of time of the postinitiation stage of carcinogenesis. All the drugs used locally effectively inhibited the development of induced carcinomas of the uterus cervix and vagina. When orally used, the drugs of ginseng exhibited only an insignificant tendency to inhibit the carcinogenesis of uterus cervix and vagina. The anticarcinogenic effects of the compared drugs were similar.
