Previous research suggested that conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) feeding during the period of pubescent mammary gland development in the rat resulted in diminished mammary epithelial branching which might account for the reduction in mammary cancer risk. Terminal end buds (TEB) are the primary sites for the chemical induction of mammary carcinomas in rodents. One of the objectives of the present study was to investigate the modulation of TEB density by increasing levels of dietary CLA and to… CONTINUE READING
