  • Includes syngeneic models, human tumor xenograft models, orthotopic models, metastatic models, transgenic models, and gene knockout models
  • Provides preclinical and clinical cancer researchers alike with a comprehensive guide to the selection of these models, their effective use, and the optimal interpretation of their results
Beverly A. Teicher and a panel of leading experts comprehensively describe the state-of-the-art in animal tumor model research. This volume updates and extends the comprehensive presentations in the first edition. The wide array of models detailed form the basis for the selection of compounds and treatments that go into clinical testing of patients, and include syngeneic models, human tumor xenograft models, orthotopic models, metastatic models, and genetically engineered mouse models. Synthesizing many years experience with all the major in vivo models currently available for the study of malignant disease, Tumor Models in Cancer Research 2nd edition, provides preclinical and clinical cancer researchers alike with a comprehensive guide to the selection of these models, their effective use, and the optimal interpretation of their results.
