Abstract
Female C3H/He mice carrying the mammary tumor virus (MTV) were monitor ed for mammary tumor incidence and latent periods while subjected to a daily intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of placebo or alprazolam (1 mg /kg per day). Although all of the mice were potential candidates for M TV-induced breast cancer, those injected with alprazolam were partiall y protected against adverse effects of stress induced by the daily adm inistration of placebo.
