The Digitized Atlas of Mouse Liver Lesions

Much of the work carried out by DTT is in support of the National Toxicology Program (NTP), an interagency partnership of the Food and Drug Administration, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and NIEHS.

This Digitized Atlas of Mouse Liver Lesions provides color photomicrographs illustrating examples of some spontaneous, aging as well as chemically induced non-neoplastic and neoplastic histopathological hepatobiliary lesions commonly observed in B6C3F1 and Genetically Modified mice from acute, subchronic and chronic toxicity and/or carcinogenicity studies conducted by the National Toxicology Program. In addition to the color photomicrographs, content includes internationally accepted (standardized) diagnostic nomenclature as well of descriptions for some of the lesions.
