The effect of magnetic fields on normal and malignant cells has been a subject of controversy for many years. Among those workers reporting positive effects are Payne-Scott and Love,1 who described protoplasmic degeneration in cultures of embryo chick heart following exposure to a field of 5000 Oe. In our laboratories, I. L. Mulay2 noted degeneration of S-37 ascites cells (in vitro) within 18 hr of exposure to a field of 8000 Oe. Control cells showed normal growth and active differentiation at corresponding times (see Part II, Ch. 7).
