Inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX) 2, which is associated with >40% of breast cancers, decreases the risk of tumorigenesis and breast cancer recurrence. To study the role of COX-2 in breast cancer, we engineered mice that lack selectively mammary epithelial cell (MEC) COX-2 (COX-2 KO(MEC)). Compared with wild type (WT), MEC from COX-2 KO(MEC) mice expressed(More)
Systemic inhibition of the inflammatory enzyme cyclooxygenase (COX) 2 decreasesthe risk of breast cancer and its recurrence. However, the biology of COX-2 in themulticellular tumor microenvironment is poorly defined. Mammary tumor onset and multiplicity were examined in ErbB2 transgenic mice thatwere deficient in mammary epithelial cell COX-2 (COX-2MECKO)(More)
