A transplantable reticulum cell sarcoma with leukemic manifestations can be transmitted from one hamster to another by means of a mosquito, A�des aegypti (L.). The transmission seems to be by a transfer of tumor cells, and not by passage of some other oncogenic agent. 
Mosquito transmission of lymphomas
TLDR
A hamster reticulum cell sarcoma, TM, was transmitted through the mosquito Aëdes aegypti by a transfer of tumor cells, and there was no evidence of immunity to the Rauscher virus conferred by a subclinical infection. Expand
Horizontal Transmission of Feline Leukaemia Virus
As feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) is shown to be transmitted horizontally it may be possible to vaccinate cats against lymphosarcoma and other FeLV-associated diseases.

TLDR
Resistance to tumor development in chickens susceptible to infection but genetically resistant to tumor formation could be mediated through regression of in situ tumors. Expand
Biological characteristics of primary tumors induced by polyoma virus in hamsters
TLDR
Eleven primary subcutaneous tumors induced by polyoma virus in hamsters were analyzed for morphology, growth capacity in vitro, transplantability and karyology and a population emerged that was able to grow indefinitely in vitro. Expand
Bovine Lymphoma — Epidemiology, Diagnosis, Transmission, Pathology
TLDR
Bovine leukemia is a malignant neoplastic disease which was first reported in the 1870’s and is also known as bovine lymphosarcoma, even though leukemia in the classical sense rarely occurs. Expand
Epidemiology of Primary Neoplasms of Lymphoid Tissues in Animals
This chapter will discuss the occurrence of lymphoid tumors of animals other than man to acquaint the interested reader with the epidemiology and etiology of these tumors. The term lymphosarcomaExpand
The Clammy Grip of Parasitic Tumors
TLDR
Forensic DNA markers are used to demonstrate that the leukemia cells have a clonal origin and appear to be transmitted through sea water. Expand
Cancer cell transmission via the placenta
TLDR
Three special examples of transmissible animal cancers occurring in utero: maternal to foetus, intraplacental twin to twin leukaemias and choriocarcinoma-extra-embryonic cells to mother are discussed. Expand
The cancer which survived: insights from the genome of an 11000 year-old cancer.
TLDR
The evolutionary processes and adaptions which underlie the success of this remarkable lineage of canine transmissible venereal tumour are speculated on. Expand
Chromosomal analysis of some transplanted tumors induced by 3‐methylcholanthrene in golden hamsters
TLDR
Three primary tumors induced by 3‐MCA in the golden hamster, with a diploid chromosome constitution and a short latency period, were allogeneically transplanted and a model of heteroploid transformation was established. Expand
