Animal Models of Breast Cancer Bone Metastasis
This chapter is designed to provide a comprehensive overview outlining the different in vivo models available for research into breast cancer bone metastasis. The main focus is to guide the researcher through the methodological processes required to establish and utilize these models within their own laboratory. These detailed methods are designed to enable the acquisition of accurate and meaningful results that can be used for publication and future translation into clinical benefit for women with breast cancer-induced bone metastasis.
