Description:

A "maternal resistance factor" for X-ray induced lymphomagenesis has been reported in SWR and ST/b mice. A maternal resistance factor that exerts a suppressive effect on spontaneous MuLV induced lymphomagenesis has also been noted but there is evidence to suggest that the MuLV resistance factor may be transmitted in the mother's milk (see Lilly F, in Genetic Control of Host Resistance to Infection and Malignancy. Liss 1985, pp 631-38).
