Anesthetic Considerations for the Study of Murine Tumor Models

This chapter is to provide researchers with an overview over the requirements, challenges, and current solutions of rodent anesthesia in preclinical cancer research. Since the overwhelming majority of research is currently done in mouse models, rather than rats or other rodents, the review will focus predominantly on mouse strains. We will provide a range of hands-on protocols and suggestions on the application of the most commonly used rodent anesthesia procedures.
