They report studies of the respiration in ova of sea urchins, human erythrocytes, and the red blood cells of frogs, birds and rabbits. The remaining twenty (1923-1929) are studies of the metabolism of tumors. No change has been made in reproducing the original articles other than translation and a few additional footnotes. Improved methods of growing tissue and of maintaining tumor tissue alive over long periods outside the body have naturally brought about investigations of their metabolism under such controlled conditions. Beginning less than a decade ago, such studies are now under way in
