Three factors involved in the Solt and Farber model of rat liver carcinogenesis were studied alone and in various combinations: diethylnitrosamine (DEN) initiating dose, 2-acetylaminofluorene (2-AAF) feeding and partial hepatectomy. The administration of DEN alone (200 mg/kg) was able to switch on glutathione-S-transferase, placental type (GST-P) expression(More)
3-monochloropropane-1,2-diol (3-MCPD) is a member of a group of chemicals known as chloropropanols. It is found in many foods and food ingredients as a result of food processing. 3-MCPD is regarded as a rat carcinogen known to induce Leydig-cell and mammary gland tumours in males and kidney tumours in both genders. The aim of our study was to clarify the(More)
3-Monochloropropane-1,2-diol (3-MCPD) is a food-born contaminant known to display toxic effects on male reproduction, producing infertility in rats and humans. Using the rat as a model, we investigated whether or not testicular organogenesis, which, in the rat species, occurs during the second half of gestation, was at particular risk regarding 3-MCPD(More)
