Animal Models for Tumors of the Ovary and Uterus

  • June Marchant


The ultimate objective of animal studies of cancer is to achieve a better understanding of factors responsible for human disease in the hope that this may be ultimately eliminated or controlled. In order to establish the basic biologic mechanisms governing the development of human cancer, systematic controlled experiments are required. For practical and ethical reasons, these are impossible to carry out with humans so animal models have to be sought.
