The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of dietary garlic powder on diethylnitrosamine (DEN)- induced hepatocarcinogenesis and cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes in weaning male Sprague-Dawley rats by using the medium-term bioassay system of Ito et al. The rats were fed diets that contained 0, 0.5, 2.0 or 5.0% garlic powder for 8 weeks, beginning(More)
This study was conducted to examine the effects of dietary garlic powder at the different levels on preneoplastic foci formation and glutathione (GSH)-dependent detoxifying enzyme activities in rat hepatocarcinogenesis. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed with garlic powder supplemented diets (0, 0.5, 2.0 or 5.0%) for 11 weeks, and induced(More)
OBJECTIVE The numbers of older hemodialysis patients (OHPs) are increasing very rapidly worldwide, but few studies have focused on the compliance of OHPs.
