To provide an investigative tool for the study of osteosarcoma (OSA) biology we have developed a syngeneic (balb/c) murine model of OSA, using cell lines derived from a spontaneously occurring murine OSA (Schmidt et al. Differentiation 1988; 39: 151-60). This model is characterized by orthotopic primary tumor growth, a period of minimal residual disease,(More)
Despite advances in the management of osteosarcoma (OSA) and other solid tumors, the development of metastasis continues to be the most significant problem and cause of death for cancer patients. To define genetic determinants of pulmonary metastasis, we have applied cDNA microarrays to a recently described murine model of OSA that is characterized by(More)

PURPOSE The purpose of this research was to determine whether insulin-like growth factor (IGF) suppression, using a long-acting analogue of somatostatin (OncoLAR, octreotide pamoate long-acting release), will decrease chemotherapy resistance by eliminating an important survival signal to osteosarcoma (OSA) cells in a relevant naturally occurring cancer(More)
