In vivo assessment of oestrogenic effect on breast cancer stem cells. (A) Growth curves for xenografts produced from 1,000 cells pre-treated ± 17β-estradiol, ± inhibitors. *P = 0.01 (B) In vivo tumour formation in each group represented as mice positive for growth/mice tested displayed for each cell number tested. Tumour initiating cell frequency (95% CI) estimates calculated from limiting dilution analysis.
