Linear regression analysis. Light emission as determined by the CCD camera was plotted against tumor volume. Mean values for all animals in a group along with the S.E.M are reported. (A) GCV treated mice: mice (n = 7) were imaged at start of therapy, after 1 and 2 weeks of GCV treatment, and 1 and 5 weeks after end of GCV therapy (R2 = 0.93, p = 0.008). In some mice additional images were acquired (Figure 5), but these were not included in this plot. (B) Saline treated control mice: these mice (n = 3) were imaged on days 7, 22, 29, and 35 and were sacrificed after the last BLI due to massive tumor growth (R2 = 0.98, p = 0.010).
