Oncological characteristics of a new strain of rat lymphosarcoma

  • G. B. Pliss


The author describes a new strain of rat lymphosarcoma. The initial tumor was detected in the abdominal cavity of a female rat which was fed 3,3′-dichlorobenzidine from birth. When transplanted the tumor took in 75–100% of the cases. Generalization of the process occurred occasionally in subcutaneous transplantation. In a number of cases (averaging 5.7%) “spontaneous” regression was observed.
