Mesotheliomas of tunica vaginalis testis of Fischer 344 (F344) rats treated with acrylamide: a light and electron microscopy study.

The incidence of spontaneous mesotheliomas of the tunica vaginalis testis, documented to be 1.3% in Fischer 344 rats can be increased by long term exposure to acrylamide. The light microscopic and electron microscopic features of tumors developing spontaneously in control animals were compared with those that developed in acrylamide treated animals to… CONTINUE READING
