Recent investigations on mechanism of carcinogenesis have demonstrated important quantitative relationships between the induction of neoplasia, the molecular dose of promutagenic DNA adducts and their efficiency for causing base-pair mismatch, and the extent of cell proliferation in target organ. These factors are involved in the multistage process of(More)
Chronic exposure to the hepatocellular carcinogen diethylnitrosamine (DEN) causes a dose-dependent accumulation of the promutagenic DNA adduct O4-ethyldeoxythymidine in hepatocytes and increases in the number of initiated hepatocytes as indicated by gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase positive foci. Initiation is thought to be dependent on the quantity of(More)
