Pancreatic duct adenocarcinoma was induced by intraductal administration of N‐ethyl‐N′‐nitro N‐nitrosoguanidine (ENNG) in two mongrel dogs. A dog received a total dose of 595 mg of ENNG during 12 months and was sacrificed. Duct obstruction was detected by pancreatography and duct adenocarcinoma was found. Another dog was given a total dose of 350 mg of ENNG during 8 months and was sacrificed 26 months after the first administration of the carcinogen. Duct adenocarcinoma was found. No pancreatic tumors were found in 2 dogs given intraperitoneal N‐nitrosobis(2‐oxo‐propyl)amine at a total dose of 4000 mg or in 2 dogs given Tween 60 only. These results suggest that the direct presence of a carcinogen in the pancreatic duct was able to induce duct adenocarcinoma in dogs.
