Xenografts of human osteosarcoma growing in athymic mice are inhibited in growth rate by human interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha) treatment. In addition, differentiation of trabecular bone occurs external to the osteosarcomatous tissue and this is entirely dependent on IFN treatment. We have used species-specific anticollagens and antivimentin antibodies to determine the species origins of this trabecular bone. By using immunohistochemical procedures, it was found that this bone is host-derived. Th...Expand abstract
