We describe a new experimental model of mesenteric lymph node metastasis in the rat, involving afferent mesenteric lymphatic inoculation of tumour cell suspensions via glass microcannulae. This model has been used to perform a series of experiments to investigate whether the rat mesenteric lymph node trapped tumour cells. Afferent mesenteric lymphatic inoculation of suspensions of transplantable sarcoma cells in inbred hooded Lister rats resulted in tumour growth in the inoculated lymph node in… CONTINUE READING
