RECENTLY we have shown (Laird, 1964) that the growth of a variety of tumors of the mouse, rat and rabbit, whether transplanted or primary, is well described by a Gompertzian equation. Such growth may be regarded as an exponential process limited by an exponential retardation, and tumor growth was therefore interpreted as being due mainly, if not entirely, to an exponential proliferation of tumor cells whose successive mean generation times increase according to an exponential equation. For the… CONTINUE READING
