Statistically significant difference (p ≤ 0.05) compared with aCO and bLB, according to analysis of variance followed by a least significant difference test. Marginal difference (p ≤ 0.08) compared with dLB, according to t test. The data are expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 24 per group). DMBA 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene
