Abstract

An account is presented of unsuccessful attempts to cure the NK/Ly ascites tumour in mice by doses of Degranol or irradiation which, had they not been followed by syngeneic marrow therapy, would have proved lethal as a consequence of haematopoietic failure. Reasons for the lack of success are discussed and it is concluded firstly that even the high doses of anti-tumour agents given were inisufficient to eradicate the tumour and, secondly, that the treated animals died before the controls because a virus or virus-like entity associated with the tumour seriously impeded haematopoietic recovery.
