Modified Mice Beat Cancer

Scientists at Wake Forest University School of Medicine identified a mouse resistant to even the most aggressive cancers, and now have prevented cancer in ordinary lab mice by injecting them with white blood cells from cancer-resistant mice bred from the original.

According to Newsday's article, "Mice put cancer on ice?
Study of ordinary lab mice injected with white blood cells from cancer-resistant one held the disease at bay" (May 9, 2006):

"Using a strain of mice bred from their founder mouse -- resistant to most cancers -- the team is now hunting for genes that confer this protection. The initial findings have yet to be replicated by other labs, which are just gaining access to the animals."
