This image depicts a laboratory technician holding two albino white lab mice by their tails. The mouse on the left was a normal mouse, while the mouse on the right, had been inoculated with cells of the ascites sarcoma 180 (S180A) cell line, and had developed an intra-abdominal tumorous growth, as evidenced by the swollen appearance of the animal’s abdominal region. By implanting the S180A cells into the lab mouse, as an example, various cancer fighting drugs, specifically those felt to be effective in stifling the growth of sarcomatous-type cancers, can be tested in order to determine the possible efficacy when they are used in the human model.
