Decreased resistance of C3H/HeHa mice to C3HBA tumor transplants; increased resistance due to supplemental vitamin A.


Groups of inbred C3H/HeHa and C3H/HeJ mice were inoculated with either a low or a high number of C3HBA tumor cells, C3H/HeHa mice were less resistant to tumor development and growth than C3H/HeJ mice as judged by tumor incidence, latent period, tumor size (growth rate), and survival time. Resistance to decrease and death following inoculation with tumor… (More)
