Genomic profiles of tremolite-induced malignant peritoneal mesotheliomas developed in rats

ABSTRACT: Intraperitoneal injection of tremolite initiates mesothelial injury and chronic inflammation that causes the development of malignant mesothelioma (MM). We performed high-resolution comparative genomic hybridization to identify characteristics in the genomic profiles of tremolite-induced MMs in rats. Overall design: The carcinogenesis protocol was performed by intraperitoneal injection of 10 mg of tremolite in F1 hybrid (crossing Brown-Norway and Fischer344) rats. Genomes of 8 malignant peritoneal mesothelioma were profiled on Agilent 180K rat genome CGH microarrays.

The onset of malignant mesothelioma (MM) is linked to exposure to asbestos fibers. Asbestos fibers are classified as serpentine (chrysotile) or amphibole, which includes the crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite types. Although few studies have been undertaken, anthophyllite has been shown to be associated with mesothelioma, and tremolite, a contaminant in talc and chrysotile, is a risk factor for carcinogenicity. Here, after characterizing the length and width of these  ...[more]
