The long term chemopreventive effects of the N-(4-hydroxyphenyl) retinamide-O-glucuronide (4-HPROG), and its stable C-linked benzyl glucuronide analog, retinamidobenzyl glucuronide (4-HPRCG) on the growth and development of 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced mammary tumors were compared. The retinamidobenzyl glucuronide is stable toward acid hydrolysis(More)
