There is a large body of literature on immune reactivity to mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) during mammary tumor progression. It is a general consensus that MMTV is antigenic and elicits cell-mediated and humoral immune responses. In addition, activation of non-specific inflammatory cells has been observed in various mouse preneoplastic and neoplastic mammary lesions. How these non-conventionally activated inflammatory cells affect tumor progression is a subject of debate. The discovery of… CONTINUE READING
