Viral and Nonviral Mammary Tumorigenesis

Part of the Experimental Biology and Medicine book series (EBAM, volume 11)


Mammary tumors in the mouse are of very different histological types and histogenesis. Etiological agents include the mammary tumor virus, excessive hypophyseal and steroid hormone stimulation, chemical carcinogens and unknown factors, such as in mice after reproductive age.
