Lymph node metastases of EMT6 tumour in nude mice

  • A. Courdi
  • E. P. Malaise


Metastatic axillary lymph nodes following the injection of EMT6 tumour cells were observed in athymic nude mice, more often in female animals, and had a rapid growth rate. These metastases did not develop in syngeneic hosts. The latency of their appearance was inversely related to the number of injected cells.
