Relying on the evidence of in vitro and in vivo experiments the authors conclude that tumours require heparinoid substances for their growth, and describe new possibilities for the inhibition of tumour growth. Theoretical considerations have led to the elaboration of a method by which it is possible to check the proliferation of transplantable tumour cells in about 45 per cent of the test cases. These theoretical considerations, substantiated by experimental results, open up a fresh path to new therapeutic experiments.
