Effects of soy protein and soy phytochemicals on mammary tumor development in female transgenic mice overexpressing human pituitary growth hormone



Effects of soy protein and soy phytochemicals on mammary tumor development in female transgenic mice overexpressing human pituitary growth hormone



Journal of Medicinal Food 8(4): 556-559



The objective of this study was to determine the effect of soy-based diets on mammary tumors in female cancer-prone mice. Transgenic virgin female mice expressing human pituitary growth hormone and their respective phenotypically normal littermates were fed a diet containing either casein (C), low-isoflavone soy protein (LIS), or high-isoflavone soy protein (HIS). Indices of tumor development were measured throughout the study.
