We have established a novel ascites tumour model (MDA435/LCC6) from the oestrogen receptor-negative, invasive and metastatic MDA-MB-435 human breast cancer cell line. MDA435/LCC6 cells grow as both malignant ascites and solid tumours in vivo in nude mice and nude rats, with a tumour incidence of approximately 100%. Untreated mice develop ascites following(More)
Psychosocial factors are thought to influence risk and survival from cancer. We have previously studied specific behaviours in transgenic male CD-1 MT42 mice, which overexpress the gene encoding human transforming growth factor alpha (TGF alpha) in multiple tissues, and which develop a high incidence of spontaneous hepatocellular carcinoma. The male TGF(More)
