(only to give you an idea. Please see my lab page/Publications for further publications.)

Persistent inflammation leads to proliferative neoplasia and loss of smooth muscle cells in a prostate tumor model.

This paper defines the role of inflammation in a specific mouse prostate tumor model

A Probasin-MerCreMer BAC allows inducible recombination in the mouse prostate
pmid=19830822 [2]

We created a mouse strain expressing an inducible form of the Cre recombinase in prostate epithelial cells.
