  1. aFisher Exact test. Values are statistically significant when p ≤ 0.05
  2. bKruskal-Wallis test. The data are expressed as median interquartile range (IqR) values. Values are statistically significant when p ≤ 0.05. aTumor incidence = the percentage of tumor-bearing rats in the group; bTumor latency = the duration in days for the first palpable tumor to develop after MNU administration; bMultiplicity = No. of tumors developed. –ve control is untreated tumor bearing negative control
