Preview

Female Sencar mice (6 weeks old) were administered 1 mg of 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) by oral gavage once a week for 5 weeks. At 20 weeks after the first dose of DMBA, 68% of mice developed mammary tumors (the average 1.08 tumors per mouse) and 45% had lymphomas/leukemias. Feeding 1% dibenzoylmethane (DBM) in AIN 76A diet, starting at 2 weeks before the first dose of DMBA and continuing until the end of the experiment, inhibited both the multiplicity and incidence of DMBA-induced mammary tumor by 97%. The incidence of lymphomas/leukemias was completely inhibited by 1% DBM diet. In contrast, feeding 2% curcumin diet had little or no effect on the incidence of mammary tumors, and the incidence of lymphomas/leukemias was reduced by 53%.
