Dose-dependent promotion of rat forestomach carcinogenesis by combined treatment with sodium nitrite and ascorbic acid after initiation with N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine: possible contribution of nitric oxide-associated oxidative DNA damage.

Abstract

Dose-dependent promotion effects of combined treatment with sodium nitrite (NaNO2) and ascorbic acid (AsA) on gastric carcinogenesis were examined in rats pretreated with N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG). Groups of 15 6-week-old F344 male rats were given 0.01% MNNG in their drinking water for 10 weeks to initiate carcinogenesis in the glandular… (More)
