The effects of feeding mice raw or heated soy flours or casein in the presence and absence of injected azaserine were investigated over a period of 18 months. Although the feeding of raw soy flour (compared with heated soy flour or casein) caused a significant inhibition of growth and an enlargement of the pancreas, there was no macroscopic evidence of pancreatic nodules in any of the six experimental groups. Microscopic examination of the pancreas revealed a somewhat higher (not significant) incidence of atypical acinar cell nodules in all animals injected with azaserine, but this difference was little influenced by the diets themselves. We concluded that raw soy flour itself has no carcinogenic effect on the mouse pancreas and does not enhance the sensitivity of the mouse pancreas to azaserine. Thus, it cannot be assumed that the appearance of pancreatic nodules constitutes an obligatory sequela of pancreatic hypertrophy and/or hyperplasia in all species of animals.
