For"the analysis of preneoplastic response female Wistar rats were treated continuously with different doses of 4-dimethylaminoazobenzene and N-nitrosodiethanolamine. S % enzyme-altered tissue in liver were determined for each dose group by regression analysis of time-dependent increases in the volumetric fraction of ATPase-deficient foci. Doubling the daily exposure level of 4-DAB will cut the median tumor induction time into half. An approximately SO-fold increase in daily dose, however, is necessary with NDEOL to obtain the same effect.
