Methylnitrosourea is a known prostate carcinogen, and it would be interesting, Huff postulated, to expose strains of rats and mice to this agent to find an animal that would be a good model for prostate-specific carcinogens.
Whether the same mechanism is involved in the increase in number and incidence of methylnitrosourea (MNU)-initiated tumors after neonatal TCDD exposure on PND 18 (Desaulniers et al.
Effect of dietary undegraded carrageenan on colon carcinogenesis in F344 rats treated with azoxymethane or methylnitrosourea. Cancer Res 38:4427-4430 (1978).
On day 21, all treatment groups, except for a control group and a 1,000-mix group, received a single intraperitoneal injection of methylnitrosourea (MNU, 30 mg/kg bw), the initiator of the carcinogenic process.
Thus, our objective was to determine whether exposure to this mixture by gavage from neonatal day 1 to day 20, or whether a single exposure to TCDD at neonatal day 18 could modulate the development of methylnitrosourea (MNU)-induced mammary tumors.
