- ... We investigated whether sodium butyrate, administered orally as gastroresistant slow-release pellets to rats, could affect markers of colon carcinogenesis. F344 male rats were fed a high-fat diet (230 g/kg corn oil, wt/wt) and treated with two injections (1 wk apart) of azoxymethane (15 mg/kg sc) or saline. Rats were then divided into two groups: one received the diet with 1.5% (wt/wt) sodium buty ...
