Influence of combined deficiency of fat and vitamin A on benzo(a)pyrene-induced lung carcinogenesis in rats.

Abstract

The present study shows the effect of combined dietary deprivation of fat and vitamin A on benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) induced lung carcinogenesis in male Wistar rats. Lung tumors were induced by intratracheal instillation of BaP-Fe2O3 in normal saline. The tumor incidence and tumor burden in control animals were 82% and 2.28 respectively. Fat deficiency decreased… (More)
