Carcinogenic risk of small doses of precursors of nitroso compounds, i.e. sodium nitrite (total dose in 0.2-2.0 g/mouse in drinking water) and morpholine (total dose is 0.23 g/mouse in bread) was studied in 520 CBA and 290 C57Bl mice during 96 weeks. It is shown that under these conditions the carcinogenic effect was more pronounced in CBA mice: there was a(More)
Tumours were induced in CBA mice or (C57BL X CBA)F1 hybrids by the application of benz(a)pyrene (BP), 6-methylBP, 6-formylBP or 7,12-dimethylbenzanthracene (DMBA) to the skin. 7,8-benzoflavone (BF) used in combination with the mentioned agents decreased the carcinogenic action of methyl-substituted hydrocarbons--DMBA and 6-methylBP and had no effect on the(More)
CBA female mice received weekly subcutaneous injections of 1,2-dimethylhydrazine (1,2-DMH) in a dose of 8 mg/kg for 10 weeks (group 1). In groups 2,3 and 4 1,2-DMH plus estradiol dipropionate were administered for 10, 20 or 25 weeks, respectively. The incidence of uterine sarcoma in groups 1, 2, 3 and 4 was 3.3, 2.5, 65.4 and 73%, respectively. The mice(More)
We report a study of referential choice in discourse production, understood as the choice between various types of referential devices, such as pronouns and full noun phrases. Our goal is to predict referential choice, and to explore to what extent such prediction is possible. Our approach to referential choice includes a cognitively informed theoretical(More)
This is the f i r s t study of a i rp lane engines as a source of carc inogenic pollution of the environment . R e m e m b e r i n g that soot f rom var ious types of a i rp lane engines can contain not only BP, but also o ther c a r cinogenic and cocarc inogenic subs tances , as well as subs tances inhibiting ca rc inogenes i s , it was decided to invest(More)
