The modifying effect of dietary exposure to a flavonoid morin during the initiation and post-initiation phases of azoxymethane (AOM)-initiated colorectal carcinogenesis was investigated in male F344 rats. A total of 55 animals were initiated with AOM by weekly s. c. injections of 15 mg/kg body wt for 3 weeks to induce colorectal neoplasms. Rats were fed a(More)
Modifying effects of curcumin (derived from the rhizome of Curcuma longa L.) during the initiation or post-initiation phase of N-nitrosomethylbenzylamine (NMBA)-induced esophageal carcinogenesis were investigated in male F344 rats. Five-week-old rats were divided into 5 groups, and groups 1, 2 and 3 were given intraperitoneal injections of NMBA (0.5 mg / kg(More)
The modifying effects of dietary exposure of the flavonoid morin on 4-nitroquinoline 1-oxide (4-NQO)-induced tongue tumorigenesis, the activities of phase II detoxifying enzymes glutathione S-transferase (GST) and quinone reductase (QR) in liver and tongue, and cell proliferation activity in tongue were investigated in male F344 rats. At 7 weeks of age, all(More)
The modifying effects of 1'-acetoxychavicol acetate (ACA) on N-nitrosomethylbenzylamine (NMBA)-induced esophageal tumorigenesis were investigated in male F344 rats. At 5 weeks of age, all test animals, except those given the test chemical alone, and the control rats received s.c. injections of NMBA (0.5 mg/kg body weight/injection, three times per week) for(More)
Polyphenolic compound chlorogenic acid (CGA) known to be much contained in coffee beans was found to have a regressive effect on induced aberrant crypt foci (ACF) as well as on development of ACF in azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colorectal carcinogenesis in rats. Rice germ and gamma-aminobutyric acid-enriched defatted rice germ inhibited AOM-induced ACF(More)
| We describe a cost-effective and low-powerconsumption approach for on-chip optical interconnection. This approach includes an investigation into architectures, devices, and materials. We have proposed and fabricated a bonded structure of an Si-based optical layer on a large-scale integration (LSI) chip. The fabricated optical layer contains Si(More)
The modifying effects of dietary administration of 1,4-phenylene diisothiocyanate (DITC) on N-butyl-N-(4-hydroxybutyl) nitrosamine (BBN)-induced urinary bladder carcinogenesis during the initiation and post-initiation phases were examined in male ICR mice. Five-week-old animals were divided into 5 groups. Groups 1-3 were given BBN (500 ppm) in drinking(More)
We report on a channel drop filter with a mode gap in the propagating mode of a photonic crystal slab that was fabricated on silicon on an insulator wafer. The results, simulated with the 3-dimensional finite-difference time-domain and plane-wave methods, demonstrated that an index-guiding mode for the line defect waveguide of a photonic crystal slab has a(More)
