Testing PARP Inhibitors Using a Murine Xenograft Model
Methods Mol Biol. 2017 ;1608 :313-320

Animal models are indispensable research tools for various drug discovery and development applications. In cancer research, the growth of tumors in vivo is necessary in order to closely modulate a potential response in humans. Ectopic (subcutaneous) xenografting of human cancer cells into immunodeficient mice has long been the standard model for preclinical evaluation of novel antitumor therapeutic agents. Here, we describe the establishment and use of subcutaneous xenograft mouse model to evaluate the antitumor activity of PARP-1 inhibitors.
