  1. BT-474 cells were inoculated subcutaneously in female nude mice carrying an estrogen-release pellet. When the tumors reached 100 to 200 mm3, drug treatment was initiated. Each group consisted of eight animals. NVP-AUY922 was administered once per week at the indicated dose levels. Tumor volumes and body weights were measured three times per week, and the experiment was evaluated 20 days after the first dose was administered. The percentage T/C represent the mean change in tumor volume of the treated group divided by the mean change in tumor volume of the vehicle treated control group. aStatistical significance compared with vehicle-treated controls (P < 0.05, one-way analysis of variance post hoc Dunnett).
