Laboratory studies of cancer spread should enable us to define the natural history of cancer exactly. The vast body of research into this biological phenomenon, on cells cultured both in vitro and in vivo, on grafted animal tumours, induced or spontaneous, and on experimental models, has contributed valuable information, but there are such variations in tumour type, animal species, cell environment and experimental technique that it is difficult to extrapolate the data to cancer in man.
