  1. All mice were intranasally-instilled, 3 doses (4 mg) every other day. Time to harvest was 1–6 months post-final exposure in mice with genetically-modified prostates, and > 4 months post-final exposure in mice with genetically-modified lung tissue
  2. a Pb-Cre+; PtenLL GEM model
  3. b Mice treated with (1) WTC dust, (2) PBS, (3) WTC dust + Ad-cre, or (4) PBS + Ad-cre
