We have demonstrated marked effects of social housing condition on the growth rate of the androgen-responsive Shionogi mouse mammary carcinoma. The present study investigated the possible role of psychosocial variables in modulating the differential tumor growth rates observed. Male DD/S mice were reared individually housed (I) or in groups (G) of three or(More)
In the present study, we demonstrate that social housing conditions significantly alter the response of the transplantable androgen-responsive Shionogi mouse mammary tumor (SC115) to chemotherapy. Mice were reared either in groups (G) or as individuals (I). Immediately following tumor cell or vehicle injection, mice were rehoused from group to individual(More)
The anorectic cobalt protoporphyrin (CoPP) is known to elicit short-term hypophagia and long-term weight loss through unknown mechanisms in the brains of experimental animals. The goal of this work was to determine 1) if the prolonged duration of action of CoPP is related to its prolonged retention within the brain; and 2) with the use of(More)
