An exponential-Gompertzian description of LoVo cell tumor growth from in vivo and in vitro data.


The data of nine monolayer cultures, 48 multicellular spheroids, and 19 s.c. xenografts of LoVo cells were fitted, on an individual basis, by exponential and Gompertzian equations, respectively. The mean growth parameters alpha 0 (initial growth rate) and beta (retardation factor) of the three experimental systems presented a strong linear correlation alpha… (More)
