Naturally occurring oncoviruses of several species1–6 are transmitted contagiously and cause lymphosarcoma (LSA) or leukaemia in their hosts7. All naturally occurring oncoviruses replicate in vivo in the tumours they induce or, as with bovine leukaemia virus, can be isolated from tumour cells grown in short-term cell culture7,8. However, we have shown that feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) is not present in a significant minority of pet cats that develop LSA9–11. Unlike experimentally induced virus… CONTINUE READING
