strain_drgs_chems This is a carcinogen-sensitive strain. 625658
strain_drgs_chems When male rats were treated with N-nitrosodiethylamine and fed a diet containing 3'-Me-DAB, after 8 weeks had 30% glutathione S-transferase placental form(GST-P) positive lesions. 625658
strain_drgs_chems Relative liver weight of animals injected with N-nitrosodiethylamine(DEN)and given 3'-Me-DAB diet was greater than DRH rats treated the same way. 625658

strain_infection Will accept 100% transplantable Yoshida sarcoma and ascites hepatoma (Satoh, 1964, Odashima, 1964). Corynebacterium liquefaciens induces a marked resistance to challenge with ascites hepatoma (Suzuki et al 1977). 1004

strain_life_disease Spontaneous tumours 74% in males at 120-weeks, mostly pituitary adenomas,phaeochromocytomas and insulinomas. In females incidence 89%, mostly uterineadenocarcinomas, mammary fibroadenomas and pituitary adenomas. Non-neoplastic lesions in120 week old males and females seen most commonly in the lung, cervical lymph nodes andkidneys (Maekawa et al 1986). Histiocytic sarcoma seen in 5.3% of males and 4.2% of females (Ogasawara et al, 1993). High incidence of endometrial cancer which can be inhibited by feedingindole-3-carbinol (present in cruceriferous vegitables). This may be due to the induction of estradiol 2-hydroxylation (Kojima et al, 1994). Intra-uterine administration of 20 mg/kg N-ethyl-N-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine dissolved in polyethylene glycol resulted in 49% endometrialcarcinomas, suggesting that this rat strain provides a good animal model for endometrialadenocarcinoma in women (Andolu et al, 1994, Takahashi et al, 1995). Spontaneous endometrial cancer develops from early histological changes first observed at about six months of age associated with persistant estrus, with endometrial hyperplasia being observed at eight months. At 12 months severe hyperplasia was observed and adenocarcinomas developed from about 15 months (Nagaoka et al, 1994) 1004
