It has been demonstrated in several model systems that tumors arise in a multistage process. Carcinogenic aromatic amines are complete carcinogens, which usually produce tumors in typical target tissues without any additional treatment. The tissue specificity, however, cannot readily be explained by genotoxic effects, and the role of secondary effects is(More)
A possible role of oxidative stress in producing acute toxicity in rat liver by aromatic amines and nitroarenes was tested. Oxidative stress was assessed by measuring the excretion of oxidized glutathione (GSSG) into the bile in isolated perfused livers and in female Wistar rats with cannulated bile ducts. The liver perfusion system was calibrated with(More)
