Induction of mammary tumors in female Sprague-Dawley rats by the food-derived carcinogen 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine and effect of dietary fat.

Abstract

2-Amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP), a carcinogen found in cooked meat, was determined to be a mammary carcinogen in female Sprague-Dawley rats on a high fat diet. Forty-three-day-old female Sprague-Dawley rats received 10 doses of PhIP (75 mg/kg, p.o., days 1-5 and 8-12). Two days after the last dose of PhIP, animals were placed on a… (More)
