Numerous drugs, hormones and environmental pollutants induce liver growth by hypertrophy and/or hyperplasia, and promote preferential growth of putative preneoplastic foci in the liver. In the present study the regression of hyperplasia after cessation of inducer/promoter treatment was studied in normal liver and in liver foci. High doses of cyproterone(More)
Apoptosis is a form of cell death involved in the regulation of cell number in various organs and tumors. Quantitative determination of cell loss through apoptosis in histological sections requires, in addition to counts of apoptotic cells, information on the duration of the histologically visible stages of apoptosis. Here we describe a method to determine(More)
Carcinogenesis was initiated in female rat liver by a single dose of N-nitrosomorpholine; subsequently phenobarbital (PB) was administered via the diet at a daily dose of 50 mg/kg body weight for up to 49 weeks. Subgroups of rats were left untreated after 10 or 28 weeks on PB. PB produced the following changes: (a) accelerated appearance of neoplastic(More)
Carcinogenesis was initiated in female rat liver by a single dose of ,Vnitrosomorpholine; subsequently phénobarbital(PB) was administered via the diet at a daily dose of 50 mg/kg body weight for up to 49 weeks. Subgroups of rats were left untreated after 10 or 28 weeks on PB. PB produced the following changes: (a) accelerated appearance of neoplastic(More)
The benzofurane derivative benzbromarone (BBR) previously has led to liver tumor formation after long-term treatment of rats, but no indications of genotoxicity were detected. The present studies were designed to elucidate the mechanism(s) possibly involved in liver tumor formation by BBR. Female Wistar rats were used. Phenobarbital (PB) served as a(More)
Blood levels of Sulfamerazine were examined in 16 calves with different severity of diarrhoea in consideration of kidney function and compared with the values of 5 clinically intact animals. Urea and creatinine levels in plasma as well as urea and creatine clearance were tested to check kidney function. A single dose of 60 mg Sulfamerazine/kg body weight(More)
