Growth of metastases of the mouse adenocarcinoma EO 771: an allometric relationship between growth of the primary tumors and their metastases

Clinical & Experimental Metastasis
I D Bassukas, B Maurer-Schultze

Abstract

Growth and cell kinetic parameters have been studied of paraaortal lumbar lymph node metastases of the mouse adenocarcinoma EO 771 growing intramuscularly in the thigh. An allometric relationship was found between the growth of the metastasis and that of the primary tumor, i.e. a linear relationship exists between the logarithm of the size of the metastasis and that of the primary tumor which permits the estimation of the growth rate of the metastasis based on the growth curve of the primary tumor. However, growth of metastases differs quantitatively from that of the primary tumor: the specific growth rate (growth rate per unit size) of the metastasis (1) is greater than that of the simultaneously growing primary tumor but (2) is smaller than that of the primary tumor of the same size as the metastasis. The allometric growth relationship further suggests that metastases originate later than is generally predicted presuming exponential growth of metastasis.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.
