In order to study the protection of beta-carotene and vitamin C against the transformation of human lung fibroblasts (HLF) cell induced by nickel sesquioxide, HLF cells were treated repeatedly by different concentrations of Ni2O3 in vitro. beta-carotene (5.4 mg/L) and vitamin C(1.8 mg/L) were added into the media containing Ni2O3(1.0 mg/L) respectively. The identification of malignancy of the transformation of HLF cell was carried out by the tests of ConA and the growth on semisolid agar…
