Growth of MCF-7 cells as tumors in nude mice. MCF-7 cells were mixed with PBS (control) (a) or Col I (a,b) or LM (b) and implanted subcutaneously in ovariectomized nude mice supplemented with estradiol. (b) Mice were subsequently divided into two groups, which received either estradiol (Col 1, LM) or estradiol + antiestrogen (ICI 182,780) (Col + ICI, LM + ICI). Col 1, collagen type 1; LM, laminin; ICI, ICI 182,780.
