Mammary tumors developed when 7-month-old Swiss-Webster female mice were subcutaneously injected with nematodes in the dorsal frontal area of mammary tissue. Reactions observed were loss of vibrissae (47%), development of tumors (24%) and death (10%). Loss of vibrissae occurred within 1 or 2 weeks after the third injection. Tumors developed between the seventh and tenth week. No animal developed multiple tumors involving different regions of the body nor did spontaneous tumor regression occur.
