Growth of malignant gynecological tumors xenotransplanted into thymusaplastic nu/nu mice.

Tissues of 447 malignant gynecological tumors were subcutaneously xenotransplanted into thymusaplastic nu/nu mice (NMRI). The average rate of takes was 75% with a range from 53% in mammary carcinomas to 94% in sarcomas. However, for therapeutic experiments sufficient growth is necessary. In addition to the take rate, growth rapidity and feasibility of… CONTINUE READING
