    To elucidate the previously suggested vascular effect(s) of antiestrogen therapy, we studied the effect of estrogen withdrawal and tamoxifen on 1) vascular resistance, 2) glucose and oxygen consumption, and 3) vascular density in a perfused breast cancer line (ZR75-1). Furthermore, we examined...
