Moderate dietary or caloric restriction (DR) modulates animal physiology in a beneficial fashion. Previously, we have reported an equitoxic dose experiment where liver injury in DR male Sprague-Dawley rats exposed to a low dose of thioacetamide (TA, 50 mg/kg) was similar to that observed in ad libitum fed (AL) rats exposed to a 12-fold higher dose (600(More)
We have investigated the effects of chlordecone 1(CD)+CCl4 combination in adult (3 months), middle aged (14 months), and old aged (24 months) male Fischer 344 (F344) rats. After a non-toxic dietary regimen of CD (10 ppm) or normal powdered diet for 15 days, rats received a single non-toxic dose of CCl4 (100 microl/kg, i.p., 1:4 in corn oil) or corn oil (500(More)
Dietary restriction (DR) delays the onset of aging and lowers the incidence of both spontaneous and chemically induced cancers. The inhibition of cell proliferation has been suggested as a possible mechanism for this effect. We examined the effect of DR on cell proliferation in duodenum, forestomach, glandular stomach, and liver tissues of male Fischer 344(More)
