Several novel animal models for lung cancer have been developed in recent years. Cancer mouse models by exposure to various carcinogens are still commonly used tumor mouse models. Benzo(a)pyrene (B[a]P) is one of the major environmental pollutants and induces carcinogenesis specifically targeting the lung. The aim of this study is to establish a standard design of mouse models for lung cancer following B[a]P exposure method.
