Figure 8.6

Survival of wild-type TRAMP mice versus Pten heterozygous TRAMP mice that have one Pten allele knocked out. Kwabi-Addo et al. (2001) ascribed death in all 63 mice shown in these plots to either a large primary tumor or to metastatic disease. Survival plots of this sort are often called Kaplan-Meier plots.
