Total tissue sensitivity is that which determines the dose limitations which must be made. Hematologic recovery is usually completed in two weeks in the mouse and 3-4 weeks in man. 3). Most of the phase specific agents are antimetabolites, and particularly for those which interfere with DNA synthesis the fact that they not only kill cells in the S-phase of cell cycle but prevent cells from entering the DNA synthetic phase, further limits the effect that they will have when given as bolus injections; they may be 'self-limiting' as demonstrated in tissue culture [26, 27].
Neil and Homan  using whole animal survival, were able to correlate the optimal time interval for administration of Ara-C, and Hydroxyurea with the time required after the first injection for the cell population to recover the ability to synthesize deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). This proved to be dose dependent, a finding also examined by Edelstein et al.  using the spleen colony assay for leukemic cell survival. In the latter study, even nonoptimal split schedules were superior to a single dose schedule both in promoting leukemic cell kill and in increasing the life span of treated animals.
Yet this is a clear and unambiguous prediction of the somatic mutation model. Of course, the validity of this prediction can only be established by means of the appropriate clinical investigations. It may well be that, for most clinical tumours, the actual delay time that can be afforded before the institution of adjuvant chemotherapy is comfortably greater than that which the mutation model predicts. If this is the case, then there is no urgency about the institution of the chemotherapy, or for developing logistic methods for implementing preoperative chemotherapy.
