  • Effects of Inorganic Arsenic on the Rat and Mouse Urinary Bladder. Shugo Suzuki; Lora L. Arnold; Takamasa Ohnishi; Samuel M. Cohen // Toxicological Sciences;Dec2008, Vol. 106 Issue 2, p350 

    Inorganic arsenic (arsenate and arsenite) is a known human carcinogen, inducing tumors of the skin, urinary bladder, and lung. Understanding the mechanism of inorganic arsenic carcinogenesis has been hampered by a lack of animal models. To define the urothelial effects of inorganic arsenic, we...
