Calculation of percentage of hormone independent transplantable cells in experimental mammary tumors.

Abstract

Some cancer types (e.g. breast cancers) are known to consist of mixed populations of cells which respond to hormones, and cells that do not. A theoretical model is proposed to investigate the proportion of these different cell types in experimental tumors. The model exploits the fact that when grafts are treated with hormones, both cell types form an… (More)
