INTRODUCTION: Tumor populations may selectively colonize bone that is being actively remodeled. In prostate cancer patients, androgen deprivation directly inhibits tumor growth initially, whilst induced bone loss may facilitate tumor colonization of bone by androgen-insensitive cells. We have tested this hypothesis using a xenograft model of early growth of prostate cancer in bone. METHODS: PC3 cells transfected with Green fluorescent protein (GFP) were injected into castrated and non-castrat...Expand abstract
