Consumption of carotenoids has frequently been inversely correlated with cancer incidence. In this report we used the 7,12-dimethyl-benz[a]anthracene (DMBA)-induced rat mammary tumor model to compare the effect of lycopene-enriched tomato oleoresin on the initiation and progression of these tumors with that of beta-carotene. Rats were injected i.p. with(More)
We address the issue of edge detection in Synthetic Aperture Radar imagery. In particular, we propose nonparametric methods for edge detection, and numerically compare them to an alternative method that has been recently proposed in the literature. Our results show that some of the proposed methods display superior results and are computationally simpler(More)
Parathion toxicity has been attributed to its metabolic product paraoxon which is formed in the mammal liver through the multiple oxidase enzymes. These are induced by barbiturates and inhibited by SKF 525 A and cimetidine. We assessed the effects of these drugs on the acute toxicity of parathion in rats by measuring the rate of survival at 24 h after the(More)
