Intrasplenic grafting of ovarian tissue containing 7, 12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene.

To produce malignant granulosa cell tumors, ovarian tissue containing 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) was autografted in the spleen of 20 castrated rats. Adenocarcinoma developed in 8 rats within 6 months from the transplantation. Granulosa cell tumor arose from the intrasplenic graft, in 6 rats at the 14th month. The neoplastic cells were diffusely… CONTINUE READING
