Carcinogenesis, Urinary Tract, Rat
Animal models are very useful for studying the pathogenesis of human disease. Experimental chemical carcinogenesis in the urinary tract and in particular the urinary bladder has advanced the development of animal models for human cancer. This paper describes carcinogenesis in the urinary tract with special attention to experimental urinary bladder carcinogenesis.
