Inhibition of prolactin-induced mammary cancer in C3Hf (XVII) mice with the trans isomer of bromotriphenylethylene.


C3Hf (XVII) mice never develop spontaneous mammary tumors. However, the transplantation of an isologous pituitary gland under their kidney capsule is followed by a 10-fold increase in serum and pituitary prolactin content (180 ng/ml and 20 micrograms/mg of tissue, respectively), concomitant with an increase of prolactin receptors in mammary glands.
