Cancer and Other Lesions in Mice Receiving Estrogens

Part of the Recent Results in Cancer Research / Fortschritte der Krebsforschung / Progrès dans les recherches sur le cancer book series (RECENTCANCER, volume 66)


Three papers in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute [4, 5, 7] provide a fairly complete list of references on this subject. The microscopic sections of material illustrated in my two papers are on file at the Registry of Experimental Cancers, National Cancer Institute (NCI) and can be examined there.
