Phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), a cruciferous vegetable component, inhibits lung tumor induction by the tobacco specific nitrosamine, 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK). To gain insight into the mechanism of PEITC lung tumor inhibition, we examined, in male F344 rats, the effects of dietary PEITC (3 micromol/g NIH-07 diet) in combination… CONTINUE READING
