Feline Leukemia-Sarcoma Complex: A Model for RNA Viral Tumorigenesis

  • Gordon H. Theilen
Part of the Cancer book series (C, volume 2)

Abstract

RNA tumor viruses have been isolated from poultry, mice, cats, monkeys, and other animals, even poikilotherms, and are known to be responsible for a variety of neoplastic and nonneoplastic diseases. These RNA type C or oncornaviruses mainly cause hematopoietic and connective tissue neoplasms that in mice, poultry, cats, and monkeys have been classified as the causative agents of disease conditions in the leukemia-sarcoma complex. In addition to known tumorigenic RNA tumor virus isolates, type C virus has been suspected as the cause of leukemia in cattle, sheep, swine, dogs, and a variety of other warm-blooded animals and some cold-blooded animals.
