Summary 1. Extracts prepared from livers, spleens, and lymphatic tumors of leukemic Ak mice, were centrifugated at 1400 × g (15 minutes), then 7000 × g (5 to 10 minutes), and finally passed through Selas porcelain niters. The filtered extracts were then inoculated into newborn (less than 16 hours old) C3H or C3H(f) suckling mice. 2. Of the 84 mice inoculated with fresh, filtered extracts, 9 died from leukemia, and 15 others developed bilateral epitheliomas possibly arising in the salivary…

The Development of Leukemia and Other Neoplasms in Mice Receiving Cell-free Extracts from a High-Leukemia ( AKR ) Strain * ESTHERFINCHERHAYSANDWILLIAMS
TLDR
An attempt was begun in this laboratory to repeat the experiments of Gross with cell-free extracts in several recipient strains and to characterize the active agent, which may be one or several viral agents in the leukemic extracts.

TLDR
Among the extracts used for inoculations, some, although prepared from typical leukemias and under apparently identical experimental conditions, revealed no pathogenic potency on inoculation assays, similar results have been obtained recently by Woolley.

C-type virus particles in urethan-induced pulmonary and renal carcinomas, in cell-graft-transmitted carcinosarcomas, and in filtrate-induced lymphomas in mice.
TLDR
Theoretically, it could be assumed that both the primary urethan-induced pulmonary and renal tumors, as well as the cell-graft-induced peritoneal carcinosarcomas, contained the C-type virus particles as passengers, not necessarily related etiologically to the tumors in which they were found.

Salivary Gland Tumors in Atomic Bomb Survivors
TLDR
In experimental studies in mice, following total body x-ray irradiation, 56 out of 116 irradiated mice developed leukemia at 8 1/2 months average age, and two mice developed multicentric parotid gland carcinomas when 6 to 7 months old.

VIRAL ETIOLOGY OF CANCER AND LEUKEMIA?: GUEST EDITORIAL
TLDR
The most impressive recent advances in the field of viral etiology of tumors have been accomplished in mice, with most of the common tumors in chickens found to be transmitted by filtered extracts.

TLDR
The authors' unexpected finding of herpesvirus DNA almost exclusively in CaxPA tissues deserves further in-depth studies.
