Abstract:
Environmental factors play an important role in the etiology of several types of cancer, this discovery has led to a great deal of interest in the role of diet in cancer etiology. Fed the Egyptian toad with 0.5 ml corn oil and 0.2 mg DMBA toad/3, 3 times/week increased the incidence of liver tumor (22 out of 50 cases) in comparison with toads treated with DMBA alone (16 out of 50 cases). On the ultrastructural level, corn oil increased (a) the depletion of glycogen, (b) accumulation of fat and lysosomes in toad liver tumor. The biochemical data indicated that glucose-6 phosphatase dehydrogenase in the blood, acid and alkaline phosphatase enzymes activities were increased in serum of toads treated with DMBA and corn oil than animals treated with DMBA alone.
