Let me take few seconds to introduce myself first. I am a research scholar (PhD) working in the field of chemoprevention of liver cancer in Department of Biochemistry, University of Madras, Chennai, India and currently initiating a successful chemical hepatocellular carcinoma model in male Albino-Wistar rats to learn the details of mitochondrial membrane modifications in correlation with oxidative stress and ROS volley. For past many years, our lab is incessantly trying to bring out thriving therapeutic strategies for mounting liver disorders including hepatocellular carcinoma and hepatitis.

Recently, during my search for the basics of certain cancers I got a fluffy doubt, the reason I thought to post in this site. Do you have an idea how to induce heart cancer in experimental animals like rat, mice, pig etc.? Which chemical could be used to cause hear cancer in experimental conditions?

If anybody well versed in ‘experimental heart cancer’ or any sort of cancer biology research, please kindly do post your answers. I am eagerly waiting for the informations.

Thanking you for the patience and co-operation.

With best regards and wishes,

Sincerely Yours
Titto A. Augustine
