INTRODUCTION A physiological feature of many tumor tissues and cells is the tendency to accumulate high concentrations of copper. While the precise role of copper in tumors is cryptic, copper, but not other trace metals, is required for angiogenesis. We have recently reported that organic copper-containing compounds, including 8-hydroxyquinoline-copper(II)(More)
A sequential, quantitative loss of Peanut agglutinin (PNA) binding with progression of mouse mammary cells from normal to preneoplastic to neoplastic phenotypes was observed. Normal mammary epithelium, preneoplastic mammary lesions designated D2HAN (D2-type hyperplastic alveolar nodules) and a series of nine spontaneous tumours (D2ST1, D2ST2, D2ST3, D2ST4,(More)
Four transplantable mammary tumors, three (66, 410, and 168cl) isolated from a spontaneously occurring strain BALB/ cfCSH mammary tumor and one (D2) arising from a BALB/c hyperplastic alveolar nodule were found to grow better in mammary fatpads than at s.c. sites. Furthermore, tumor growth was better (p < 0.05) in intact mammary glands than in cleared(More)
In order to quantitate the effects of tumour subpopulation interactions, we have devised a method to determine the subpopulation composition of tumours by using paired tumour cell lines able to grow in different selective media. Line 4T07 forms colonies in thioguanine but not in HAT and line 168 forms colonies in HAT but not in thioguanine. An independent(More)
TNBC is an aggressive breast cancer subtype that does not express hormone receptors (estrogen and progesterone receptors, ER and PR) or amplified human epidermal growth factor receptor type 2 (HER2), and there currently exist no targeted therapies effective against it. Consequently, finding new molecular targets in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is(More)
In order to examine in detail the sensitivity to chemotherapy of tumour cells at various organ sites and at various stages of metastasis, we have used a series of cell lines, all selected from sister subpopulations derived from a single mouse mammary tumour, which can be distinguished and quantitated from normal cells and from each other through growth in(More)

In clinical trials of antidepressant treatments, a depression rating score is usually measured at several points of time for each patient. We propose an approach to fit data from this type of clinical trial using an exponential mixed-effects model. Compared to previous proposals, this approach has the advantage that individual recovery curves are fitted(More)

A series of subpopulation lines derived from a single mouse mammary tumor were tested for their ability to interact with each other in metabolic cooperation assays in three-dimensional col lagen gel cultures. Inhibition of growth in the presence of selec tive drug (6-thioguanine or 2-fluoroadenine) of two 6-thioguanine-resistant cell lines, 66cl4 and 44FTO,(More)
