Abstract

We established a promising new experimental animal model with an orthotopic xenograft of esophageal cancer that successfully represents poor oral intake, a major clinical feature of esophageal cancer. The advantage of this model is that no surgical technique is required, only the injection of a cell suspension by a needle and syringe via the esophageal lumen from the mouth, which provides a high reproducibility of tumor implantation and a rapid progress of outcome. We propose that this model is useful to study cancer-related outcomes and for developing new therapies for esophageal cancer, and we expect it to make a contribution to clinical practice.
