  • In order to evaluate the tumorigenic potential of kojic acid (KA), used as a food additive for preventing enzymatic browning of crustaceans and a cosmetic agent for the purpose of skin whitening, heterozygous p53-deficient CBA [p53(+/-)] mice, which are recognized as useful for detecting genotoxic carcinogens, and wild-type littermates [p53(+/+) mice] were fed diet containing 0, 1.5, and 3% KA for 26 weeks. KA induced diffuse hypertrophy and hyperplasia of thyroid follicular epithelial cells… CONTINUE READING
