The screened three wound healing agents suppressed lung carcinogenesis and their combination led to optimal preventive efficacy.
Abstract<p>(A) Three wound healing agents were administered to animals following the first carcinogen treatment and were found to prevent lung carcinogenesis. (B) They were administered following the last carcinogen treatment but did not prevent lung carcinogenesis, whereas the combination of these three agents remained effective. (C) Summary data of lung tumor incidence (n = 20). (D) Three wound healing agents restored the lung barrier in urethane-induced lung carcinogenesis. The results are presented as mean±SE (n = 10/group). *<i>p</i> < 0.05, **<i>p</i> < 0.01, vs control group.</p
