Theodor Boveri (1862–1915) is often credited with suggesting (in 1914) the first chromosomal theory of cancer, especially in terms of abnormal numbers of chromosomes arising in cells by multipolar mitoses in adult cells. However, multipolar mitoses in animal cells had been described as early as 1875, and Hansemann (1858–1920), in publications between 1890 and 1919, included this mechanism among various ways by which abnormal chromosome numbers might arise in cells and cause tumour formation… 
Letter to Editor
TLDR
In the early twentieth century, the directions of cancer research moved towards investigating Mendelian genetics in relation to tumours, and the mechanisms of action of viral, physical and chemical carcinogens.
The Foundational Framework of Tumors: Gametogenesis, p53, and Cancer.
TLDR
Tumors tend to establish a somatic asexual meiotic embryonic cycle through the activation of somatic female gametogenesis and parthenogenesis in somatic tumor cells during the tumor progression, thus passing on corresponding embryonic/germ cell traits leading to the malignant behaviors and enhancing the cells' independence.
Mutation, replicative infidelity of DNA and aneuploidy sequentially in the formation of malignant pleomorphic tumors.

TLDR
It is suggested that all three mechanisms of the genomic pathogenesis of tumors may play roles in the formation of certain tumor types, including populations which are relatively genomically stable, hyperploid and immortal.

The dualistic origin of human tumors

TLDR
Evidence is reviewed that suggests somatic cells may have a previously overlooked endogenous embryonic program that can be activated to dedifferentiate somatics cells into stem cells of various potencies for tumor initiation, and a unified dualistic model is proposed to demonstrate the origin of human tumors.
Abnormal gametogenesis induced by p53 deficiency promotes tumor progression and drug resistance
TLDR
This study establishes the genetic evidence to support embryonal/gametogenesis theory of tumors and reveals a pivotal role of p53 in restricting abnormal gametogenesis that may represent a novel aspect for p53’s tumor suppression.
Mouse Models of Human Familial Paraganglioma
TLDR
PGLs are rare (1:300,000) tumors of neuroectodermal origin derived from paraganglia, a diffuse neuroendocrine system dispersed from the base of the skull to the pelvic floor (Baysal, 2002).
Different Aneuploidies Arise From the Same Bridge-Induced Chromosomal Translocation Event in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
Ten morphologically and physiologically different translocants ensuing from the induction of the same bridge-induced translocation (BIT) event in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are described, confirming the modellistic value of the yeast BIT system for mammalian cells.
Integrating Conflicting Cancer Theories by Recognizing the Roles of Epigenetic and Genetic Alterations in the Immediate-Cancer-Causing Genes that Establish Cellular Immortality and Autonomy
TLDR
The integrated theory describes that any extracellular, intracellular, or intranuclear stressors can initiate a lengthy tumorigenesis to engender a benign or malignant tumor, but the aberrations directly establishing cellular immortality and autonomy may be epigenetic or genetic alterations in the genomic DNA.
How to count chromosomes in a cell: An overview of current and novel technologies
TLDR
In this review, an overview of several “traditional” karyotyping methods as well as the latest high throughput next generation sequencing karyotypes with their respective advantages and disadvantages are provided.

Reappraisal of the Hansemann—Boveri hypothesis on the origin of tumors
TLDR
The rare occurrence of a pluripolar spindle represented Boveri's paradigm for a type of abnormal mitosis that can produce a host of random chromosomal combinations.
DID SUTTON AND BOVERI PROPOSE THE SO-CALLED SUTTON-BOVERI CHROMOSOME HYPOTHESIS?
TLDR
It is concluded that it was unfair to include Boveri's name beside that of Sutton's as one of the proponents of the chromosome hypothesis of Mendelian heredity, because he did not publish any hypothesis of that kind during the relevant period (1902-1903).
The haematogenous theory of metastasis: Récamier did not propose it
TLDR
The work of the French physician, Joseph Claude Anthelme Récamier, is regularly quoted as an historical reference for the concept of metastasis, and particularly as the first report of the dissemination of cancer cells via the bloodstream, but data is obtained suggesting that this might not be so.
Opinion: the origin of the cancer stem cell: current controversies and new insights.
TLDR
It is shown that during development and tissue repair the fusion of genetic and cytoplasmic material between cells of different origins is an important physiological process and could be important in the development of the cancer stem cell.

Cell fusion: a hidden enemy?
TLDR
There is a possibility that cell fusion has undiscovered functions, some of which can perhaps be found by revisiting the old ideas thatcell fusion can promote disease, especially cancer.
One Hundred Years of Chromosome Research and What Remains to be Learned
