  • Abstract The tumor-tetanus phenomenon describes the selective growth of anaerobic bacteria in the tumorous tissue. The present paper offers a qualitative and quantitative explanation by means of a mathematical model based on stochastical considerations. The main outcome of our studies is the theoretical demonstration that the growth of anaerobic bacteria in the living organism during the early phase of infection—contrary to the generally accepted opinion—is stimulated by the dividing host cells… CONTINUE READING
