THE HEALING OF EXPERIMENTAL TUMORS BY TRANSFUSION OF BLOOD.

JAMA. 1908;LI(3):228-229. doi:10.1001/jama.1908.02540030050008
Abstract

There occurs occasionally on the generative organs of dogs, and transmitted by coitus, a peculiar form of tumor that is generally designated as a lymphosarcoma, but concerning the actual nature of which there has been some difference of opinion. The readiness with which it can be transplanted from dog to dog, either experimentally or through coitus, makes it seem much more like an infective granuloma than like the true malignant tumors; but most of the more recent observations seem to indicate that this growth really is a lymphosarcoma which, as the result of repeated natural implantation through coitus, has become adapted in a high degree to this method of propagation. Although this is merely a canine disease, yet its proper classification becomes an important matter because of the use to which it is being put in connection with the experimental study of tumors, along with the transplantable carcinomas of mice
