Female noninbred Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to single doses of 0.28, 0.56, and 0.85 gray (Gy = 1 J/kg or 100 rads) of X-rays or 0.001, 0.004, 0.016, and 0.064 Gy of 430-keV neutrons at 62 +/- 1 days of age and were then observed over the rest of their lives for the appearance of mammary neoplasia. As mammary neoplasms were detected, they were removed(More)
Mammary tumorigenesis was studied in female ACi rats after treatment with X-irradiation or neutron-irradiation, with or without diethylstilbestrol (DES) treatment. The mortality-corrected cumulative tumor rate based on all mammary neoplasms and the mortality-corrected incidence based on the first neoplasms only have been derived. In non-DES-treated animals,(More)
Little attention has been paid to the influence of the repro ductive condition of the rat at the time of irradiation upon X-ray-induced mammary carcinogenesis. At 12 weeks of age, 160 virgin female Sprague-Dawley rats were mated, and an other 140 were maintained as virgins. On Days 14 to 16 of pregnancy, 36 mated females and 40 virgins were whole-body(More)
This paper examines the relationship between feeding a diet rich in protease inhibitors and the reduction of mammary cancer induced by x-irradiation in Sprague-Dawley rats. Of a total of 145 irradiated animals, 44% of the 45 rats fed a raw soybean diet containing a high concentration of protease inhibitor developed mammary tumors as compared to 74% of 50(More)
Using both fluorescent labelled toxin and antibody--secondary antibody techniques, the Bacillus sphaericus toxin was found to bind strongly to susceptible Culex quinquefasciatus cells, but far less strongly to cells of insensitive insects. An insensitive clone of the C. quinquefasciatus cell line was discovered which bound toxin efficiently. The toxin was(More)
SUMMARY Female Sprague-Dawley 5-day-old rats were given s.c. either 0.05 ml sesame oil, 1.25 mg progesterone, 0.1 mg estradici benzoate, or 1.25 mg testosterone propionate. At 55 days of age all rats were given 20 mg of 7,12-dimethyl-benz(a)anthracene (DMBA) by stomach tube. All rats were killed at 190 days of age. Both the estradiol and the testosterone(More)
Young adult female rats of either the Sprague-Dawley stock or the ACI strain were each given an implant of a compressed pellet of 5 mg diethylstilbestrol (DES) and 15 mg cholestrol 2 days before irradiation with 0.4, 1.3, or 4.0 rads of 0.43-MeV neutrons. These rats were studied, along with appropriate irradiated and nonirradiated controls, until death or(More)
