Failure to demonstrate chemoprevention by the monoterpene perillyl alcohol during early rat hepatocarcinogenesis: a cautionary note.


The monoterpene perillyl alcohol (PA) is being considered as a useful chemopreventive and therapeutic agent against human cancers. However, no data are available on the effects of PA in the first stages of hepatocarcinogenesis. To study such effects, putatively initiated cells and preneoplastic foci in hepatocarcinogenesis were used as a model. Male Wistar… (More)
