Sequential development of ethylnitrosourea-induced neurinomas: morphology, biochemistry, and transplantability.

Sequential evaluations were made of the morphology and biochemistry of trigeminal nerves from control and ethylnitrosourea (ENU)-exposed rats from 1 day to 6 months of age. Distinct increases in cellularity were evident as early as 20 days after exposure to ENU. Corresponding increases in N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase and beta-glucuronidase were detected at the same time. Transplantation studies were performed with grossly normal trigeminal nerves from 32-, 63-, and 91-day-old control and ENU-exposed rats. One of eight nerves from the 32-day-old ENU-exposed donors developed into neurinomas at the site of transplantation. No tumors developed from nerves of controls. These results indicate that the early increases in cellularity and acid hydrolase activities represent neoplastic rather than preneoplastic changes.[1]
