Prevention by acetylsalicylic acid of liver cirrhosis and carcinogenesis as well as generations of 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine and thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances caused by a choline-deficient, L-amino acid-defined diet in rats.

Effects of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) (aspirin) on the pathogenesis of fatty liver, cirrhosis and hepatocarcinogenesis caused by a choline-deficient L-amino acid-defined (CDAA) diet were examined in male Fischer 344 rats fed a CDAA diet supplemented with 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4 or 0.8% ASA for 30 weeks. ASA at concentrations of > 0.2% prevented the development of… CONTINUE READING
