Assessing growth and response to therapy in murine tumor models.


Rodent models provide an important means of assessing antitumor activity vs toxicity for new cancer therapies. Tumors are often grown subcutaneously on the flank or back of animals, allowing accurate serial determination of tumor volume with calipers by measuring the tumors in three dimensions. The advantages of assessing tumor volume in subcutaneous tumors… (More)
