An investigation of secondary malignancies and whether certain susceptibilities are genetically predetermined. Animals were evaluated for baseline hematology. Some animals were treated with N-nitroso-N-ethylurea (ENU) and then evaluated for tumor burden in the blood, lungs, and gastrointestinal system. There were two cohorts: 1) controls; 2) treated with 100 mg/kg body weight ENU i.p.

Procedures conducted:
• complete blood count  Hematology.
• histopathology  Tumor growth frequency rates. ENU mutagen 100 mg/kg vs. control.

Mice: inbred   20 strains   ♀♂   age 9wks; 12-64wks   2 experimental groups
