Dr. H. R. Gaylord, Buffalo, reviewed the literature regarding the transplantation of tumors. He referred to one operation reported by Ehrlich, in which the tumor started by inoculation from a carcinomatous growth that at the thirteenth generation developed into a sarcoma. Spontaneous recovery took place in about 50 per cent. of the cases inoculated. He also referred to experiments made by injecting the serum from immune mice, or by mixing the blood of the immune mice with the germ as prepared for inoculating others, which would prevent its taking any effect. He gave a detailed account of the experiments conducted under his direction with a view to proving the germ theory.
