Postsurgical 4T1 metastasis model
preclinical tumor model from the MiTO database
  • Syngeneic transplantation of 4T1 cells into Balb/cN mice. Resection of primary tumor and follow-up of metastasis to lungs

  • metastasis 4t1 syngeneic mammary gland tumor breast cancer model lymphnode metastasis

Manipulations and tumor entities

    • mammary tumor cell

    • 40000 cells/30 µl PBS

    • orthotopically

    • primary mammary gland tumor growth after 8 days of latency. Resection of primary tumors 11 days post transplantation at a mean tumor volume of 0,134 cm³. Pain management with Metamizol: 200 mg/kg s.c. 20 min prior to surgery and thereafter via 800 mg/kg in drinking water.

      21 days post resection, the lungs were positive for macroscopically visible lung metastasis. Lymph nodes were positive on the flank with surgery.
