(1) We measured the weights of the nude mice
and the longest axis (a), shortest axis (b), and thickness (c) of the tumor tissues.
Establishment of the Tumor Models in Nude Mice
. Male BALB/c-nu mice of SPF grade, 4-5 week-old, were purchased from Hunan SJA Laboratory Animal Co., Ltd, in Changsha, China [License Number SCXK (Xiang) 20140002].

To evaluate the biodistribution profile nude mice
(n = 4) were intravenously injected with either 1-2 MBq [sup.68]Ga- or 0.3 MBq [sup.89]Zr-labelled mono-, di-, and trimer (0.1-0.2 nmol).

. (a) Angioreactors implanted subcutaneously on each flank of a nude mouse.
(BALB/C, female, 4-week-old, 12.5~ 17.5 g) were purchased from Slac Laboratory Animal Corp (China).
PET-CT with [sup.18]F-fluorodeoxyglucose ([sup.18]F-FDG) was used for detecting and monitoring tumor development in healthy and CCA-xenografted nude mice
. High dose [beta]-eudesmol potently inhibited tumor growth and prolonged survival time of mice compared with 5-FU and untreated control (Figures 8(a) and 8(b)).
Female BALB/c nude mice
(4-6 weeks old, n = 4, weighing 18-22 g) were provided by the Experimental Animal Center of Chongqing Medical University (CQMU), China.
The team also transplanted hair follicle cell aggregates fabricated with two other methods onto the backs of nude mice
BALB/c nude mice
of 6 weeks old were purchased from Charles River Laboratories (Beijing, China).
