Table 1 Tumor induction in 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene treated groups in relation to diet.

From: Effect of Cu supplementation on genomic instability in chemically-induced mammary carcinogenesis in the rat

Diet Tumor incidence

Number of tumors in one rat Maximum tumor weight in one rat in group (g) First week at onset Body weight
± SD
1. Standard diet 9/9 (100) 1-5 12 15 206 ± 8*
2. Copper 1.3 mg/ml (42.6 mg Cu/kg diet) 9/9 (100) 1-5 7 14 231 ± 22
3. Copper 1.3 mg/ml (42.6 mg Cu/kg diet) and resveratrol 0.1 mg/ml (0.2 mg/kg bw) 12/12 (100) 2-6 11 14 229 ± 13*
  1. The data refer to tumors evaluated at 20 weeks of the animals' age (decapitation time).
  2. 1 Tumor incidence is expressed as the number of tumor-bearing rats over the total number of rats in the group.
  3. * - statistical significance p < 0.05
