Toxicity study of a rubber antioxidant, 2-mercaptobenzimidazole, by repeated oral administration to rats.
The chemical structure of 2-mercaptobenzimidazole (2-MBI), which is widely used as a rubber antioxidant, is partially similar to those of thiourea (TU) and ethylenethiourea (ETU), both potentExpand

Benzene-induced hematopoietic neoplasms including myeloid leukemia in Trp53-deficient C57BL/6 and C3H/He mice.
This research focused on three major questions regarding benzene-induced hematopoietic neoplasms (HPNs). First, why are HPNs induced equivocally and at only threshold level with low-dose benzeneExpand
