Untreated and Aroclor 1254-pretreated male Wistar rats were given a single dose of 1.0 mg/kg body weight of randomly tritium-labelled 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b] pyridine (3H-PhIP) by oral intubation. Urine and faeces were collected at 24, 48 and 72 hours after dosing, and total radioactivity determined. At 2, 4, 6, 16, 26, 48 and 72 h, animals were killed and several organs, including liver, bladder, lungs, kidney, stomach, large and small intestines, heart, thigh muscles, spleen… CONTINUE READING
