A direct relationship between immune competence and the subcutaneous growth rate of a malignant murine lung tumor.

Abstract

SUMMARY We have studied the transplantability and growth in syngeneic hosts of a malignant alveolar cell carcinoma of the BALB/c mouse lung. In untreated mice, the cancer can be established with fewer than 100 cells and grows with a volume doubling time of 3. 1 days. Total-body irradiation of the host with 500 R 2 hr prior to s.c. inoculation with tumor… (More)
