The Tg.AC mouse carrying the v-Ha-ras structural gene is a useful model for the study of chemical carcinogens, especially those acting via non-genotoxic mechanisms. This study evaluated the efficacy of the non-toxic, water-soluble antioxidant from spinach, natural antioxidant (NAO), in reducing skin papilloma induction in female hemizygous Tg.AC mice treated dermally five times over 2.5 weeks with 2.5 microg 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA). The TPA-only group was considered as a control; the other two groups received, additionally, NAO topically (2 mg) or orally (100 mg/kg), 5 days/week for 5 weeks. Papilloma counts made macroscopically during the clinical observations showed a significant decrease in multiplicity (P<0.01) in the NAO topically treated group. According to histological criteria, papilloma multiplicity were lower in both topical-NAO and oral-NAO groups, but significantly so only in the oral-NAO mice (P<0.01). The beneficial effect of NAO in the Tg.AC mouse is reported.
