Influence of cross-suckling on the incidence of mammary cancer in high and low-cancer strains of mice



Influence of cross-suckling on the incidence of mammary cancer in high and low-cancer strains of mice



Brit Jour Exp Path 24(5): 223-226



Two strains of mice, one of low and one of high breast cancer incidence were studied concerning the effect of suckling on the incidence of the tumor. Young mice of low cancer incidence parentage feeding on high breast incidence [female][female] increased the breast cancer incidence from less than 1% at 19 mos. to 29.6% at 15.2 mos. Likewise [female] mice of high cancer parentage, fed on mothers of low incidence reduced the incidence from approx. 80% to approx. 7%.
