Additional animal models either express oncogenes in a tissue-specific manner or shut down the expression of tumor suppressor genes in the complete tissue. ‘But we know that tumors generally develop from an individual cell or a small number of cells of a specific cell type, which is one of the main determinants of the characteristics of tumor cells,’ explains postdoctoral co-writer and researcher Dinorah Friedmann-Morvinski. To sidestep the shortcomings of currently used cancer models, the Salk group harnessed the power of lentiviral vectors to infect non-dividing in addition to dividing cells and ferry activated oncogenes into a small number of cells in adult, fully immunocompetent mice.Conversely, in patients aged under 30 years, use of the LLN requirements resulted in more diagnoses.
