Cytological studies of tumors

The present paper describes observations concerning the growth of two different rat ascites tumors, MTK-sarcoma II and Takeda sarcoma, implanted in the same host. Two types of tumor cells inoculated in the same host affect each other; the mitotic rate of the tumor cells is strikingly decreased and their damage with consequent retardation of tumor growth is remarkable. Growth of Takeda sarcoma is inhibited by either co-existence or pre-existance of MTK-sarcoma II in the same host. In the pre-existence of Takeda sarcoma, the damage to tumor cells of both tumors and consequent retardation of the tumor growth are very remarkable, prolonging the life of tumor-bearing animals in many cases.
