Lack of modifying effects of atrazine and/or tamoxifen on thyroid carcinogenesis in rats pretreated with N-bis(2-hydroxypropyl)nitrosamine (DHPN).


The modifying effects of atrazine, and/or tamoxifen, on thyroid carcinogenesis were investigated in a rat two-stage carcinogenesis model following N-bis(2-hydroxypropyl)nitrosamine (DHPN) initiation. Five-week-old male F344 rats were given a single subcutaneous injection of DHPN (2800 mg/kg, body weight) or vehicle alone. Starting 1 week later, the animals… (More)
