Abstract

Normal human breast lobules, freshly isolated by precision microdissection of tissue stained with methylene blue chloride, were assayed for their ability to induce neovascularization (angiogenesis) in rabbit irises. Histologically, normal lobules from cancerous breasts induced angiogenesis twice as often as lobules from noncancerous breasts, suggesting that preneoplastic transformation is diffuse.
