Synergistic enhancement of small and large intestinal carcinogenesis by combined treatment of rats with five heterocyclic amines in a medium-term multi-organ bioassay.


The carcinogenic potential of five heterocyclic amines in combination was analyzed using a medium-term multi-organ bioassay. Male F344 rats were initially treated with five known carcinogens (diethylnitrosamine, N-methyl-N-nitrosourea, N-butyl-N-(4-hydroxybutyl)-nitrosamine, 1,2-dimethylhydrazine and 2,2'-dihydroxy-di-n-propylnitrosamine) over a 4 week… (More)
