Features
Animal studies of lymph node metastasis are constrained by limitations in the techniques available for noninvasive monitoring of the progression of lymph node metastasis, as well as difficulties in the establishment of appropriate animal models. To overcome these challenges, this study has developed a mouse model of inter-lymph-node metastasis via afferent lymphatic vessels for use in the development of imaging modalities and treatment methods.

Targeted Application(s)/Industry
Non-invasive equipments for early diagnosis and treatment of lymph node metastasis.
