Females of the fostered C3H strain and the BAF1 hybrid generation, having a normal incidence of breast tumors of 1-2 per cent., were given, by mouth or injection, filtrates (Seitz filter) or extracts of glycerinated-treated tissue containing the active milk-influence for the development of spontaneous breast cancer. Sixty-three experimental mice were observed to have an incidence of 41 per cent. Thirty-six mice received unfiltered or untreated material and have had an incidence of 67 per cent… Expand
The milk agent in the origin of mammary tumors in mice.
TLDR
It is now known from the studies on mouse breast cancer that cancer as a multiple factor character may fluctuate about a physiological level; the closer these factors are to the point above which cancer appears, the more likely are the chances that the individual may collect nongenetic factors that will give rise to an early appearance of cancer.

THE MAMMARY TUMOR MILK AGENT
TLDR
The removal of the young from the uteri of females of cancerous strains was found to be more effective than foster nursing in preventing the development of mammary cancer in mice. Expand
Partial Separation of the Mammary Tumor Milk Agent and a Comparison of Various Sources of the Agent
TLDR
The present work was unde r t aken in an effort to s t udy more q u a n t i t a t i v e l y the cy top lasmic dist r ibu t ion of the agent by combin ing the technics of different ial cent r i fugat ion with those of serial di lut ion, and also, to a t t e m p t to find the most po ten t source of theAgent.

During the early decades of this century, three factors were found to play major roles in the genesis of mammary tumors in mice: the genetic constitution of the mouse, hormonal stimulation, and theExpand
Possible relationship of the estrogenic hormones, genetic susceptibility, and milk influence in the production of mammary cancer in mice.
TLDR
The incidence of mammary tumors in the progeny of cancerous and noncancerous mothers of inbred strains suggests that there are at least 2 types of these neoplasms in mice. Expand
Strain differences in response to diethylstilbestrol and the induction of mammary gland and bladder cancer in the rat.
TLDR
The response of 3 inbred lines of rats to unphysiological stimulation from diethylstilbestrol are reported; the most conspicuous pathological lesions included pituitary adenomas fatty livers and bladder calculi and papillomas and pronounced strain differences were observed in the expression of these lesions.

Increased fluidity of serum lipids and development of spontaneous mammary tumors in C3H mice
SummaryThe degree of lipid fluidity (LFU) was quantitatively monitored by fluorescence polarization analysis of the hydrocarbon fluorescent probe diphenylhexatriene when embedded in artificial andExpand
SURVIVAL OF THE MAMMARY TUMOR MILK AGENTS OF MICE
TLDR
Preliminary results show that the mammary tumor milk agent can be recovered from the yolk sac of chick embryos 12 days after the injection into eggs of either tumor suspensions or cell-free filtrates of tissues containing the active agent. Expand

TLDR
The mouse model for breast cancer has developed into a most effective means of dissecting and understanding this devastating disease, and the capability for the transplantation of tissues as well as gene manipulation make the transgenic mouse a major research resource. Expand
Mammary gland neoplasia in long-term rodent studies.
TLDR
Until there is enough information on the predictive value of mechanism-based toxicology for risk assessment, this approach should be used in conjunction with and validated by the traditional in vivo long-term bioassays, combined with comparative in vitro systems. Expand
