MFP and SC tumour sizes. Tumour volumes were calculated based on caliper measurements post-dissection of the major and minor axes and thickness (n = 4–6). SC tumours required longer development times to become size matched to MFP tumours. Greater variability was also observed at longer times, particularly in SC tumours, where several animals had smaller tumours than the cohort examined the week before.
