The extensive research focus on Wy-14,643 is particularly problematic, because a) it is typically administered at necrogenic doses well above those required for maximal responses; b) it is one of the few agonists that produce sustained, as opposed to only transient, enhancement of DNA synthesis in hepatocytes; c) unlike many other agonists, it preferentially activates rodent forms of PPAR-[alpha] (with humans exhibiting -20-fold less sensitivity); and d) humans apparently have never been exposed to it, either in an experimental or clinical setting.
Inactivity of dietary trimethylselenonium chloride against the necrogenic syndrome of the rat.
In many animal models of multistage hepatocarcinogenesis, various tumor promoters are usually administered to the animals 2 weeks after the initiation with the necrogenic dose of DEN, at a time when the liver is recovered morphologically to the normal from the necrosis (5-7).
Besides inducing liver necrosis, a single necrogenic dose of DEN to rats can also cause a decrease in the level of hepatic growth hormone (GH) receptor (10), the expression of which is partly regulated by GH (11).
