Research Institution:

University of Manitoba

Researcher:

Ranjana P Bird

Project Description:

Dr. Bird investigated whether high or low fat diets and caloric restriction alter the response, in an animal model, to determine whether aberrant crypt foci (ACF) can predict carcinogenicity. Using the ACF system, Dr. Bird sought to determine if colon cancer development can be prevented in high risk individuals by dietary means.
