Bioluminescent mouse model
of HPV+ oral tumors to track the effect of therapeutics
A bioluminescent mouse
model of HPV+ oral tumors could help evaluate potential
therapeutic candidates. In mice with inducible expression of the HPV
oncogenes E6 transforming protein (human
transforming protein (human
and luciferase, oncogenic K-Ras
expression in the epithelia induced the development of oral tumors with
enhanced bioluminescence that correlated with tumor growth. In the mouse
or image-guided radiotherapy induced tumor regression and decreased
bioluminescence at least threefold compared with vehicle or no irradiation.
Next steps could include using the model to test preclinical therapeutic
