Identification and separation of mouse and human components of heterotransplanted human tumours

  • H. M. Warenius


It has been demonstrated that, with the exception of foetal tissues (Povlsen et al., 1974) normal cells will not grow when injected into immunosuppressed animals (Stanbridge et al., 1975). It might thus be expected that heterotransplantation of human tumours into immunosuppressed mice might result in replacement of the stromal elements by mouse stroma.
