MCG 101 tumors were implanted sc. on wild-type C57 Bl and gene knockout mice to evaluate the role of host-produced cytokines [interleukin (IL)-6, IL-12, IFNgamma, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor 1, and TNF receptor 2] to explain local tumor growth, anorexia, and carcass weight loss in a well-defined model with experimental cachexia. Indomethacin was provided in the drinking water to explore interactions between host and tumor-derived prostaglandins and proinflammatory cytokines for tumor… CONTINUE READING
