Summary Injection of newborn hamsters with extracts of certain lots of rhesus monkey kidney cell cultures has been followed some months later by occurrence of neoplasms at site of injection in 109 of 154 hamsters. Three of the neoplasms were transplanted to other hamsters and the recipient hamsters developed tumors in 13 to 48 days. Transplants from the second tumor were passed from hamster to hamster 5 times and tumors developed in all surviving animals in 6 to 24 days. Tumors could not be… Expand
Identification of the oncogenic substance in rhesus monkey kidney cell culture as simian virus 40.
TLDR
Evidence is presented to show that the oncogenic virus in rhesus monkey kidney cell (RMKC) extracts responsible for the production of tumors in hamsters injected when newborn is simian virus 40 (SV40), and the monkey, like the mouse, is host for a virus that has the capacity to stimulate tumor formation in another animal species and to cause cytopathic changes in susceptible cell cultures.

The pathology of tumors and other lesions induced in rodents by virus derived from a rat with Moloney leukemia.
Summary The morbid anatomic and histologic changes following inoculation of a sarcoma-inducing virus (derived from a rat with Moloney leukemia) into mice, rats, and hamsters are described. ChangesExpand
Tumorigenicity of simian virus 40-transformed rat hepatocytes.
TLDR
SV40 transformation of rat hepatocytes can produce a tumorigenic cell line, and development of this model system will enable us to examine expression of these proteins not only in transformed cells with tumorsigenic potential but also in tumor tissue and transplantable tumor cell lines. Expand
ATTEMPTED INDUCTION OF GLIOMAS UTILIZING SIMIAN VIRUS 40.
TLDR
Although neoplasms originating in tissues outside the nervous system of the host can be transplanted intracerebrally in several species of animals, 12-24 the difference between these tumors and primary gliomas limits their value as experimental models. Expand
Ependymomas produced after Intracerebral Inoculation of SV40 into New-born Hamsters
TLDR
Eddy et al. found that similar subcutaneous sarcomas in hamsters can be induced after inoculation of preparations containing SV40, and showed that a simian virus is present in most rhesus monkey kidney cell cultures although it causes no cytopathogenic effect in them. Expand
Antigenic similarity between plasma membrane proteins of fetal hamster cells and simian virus 40 tumor surface antigens.
TLDR
The results confirm the observation that midgestation hamster embryo cells express antigen that is cross-reactive with the tumor-associated transplantation antigen(s) on SV40-transformed hamster sarcoma cells and suggest that such fetal determinants reside cryptically within the membranes of term embryo tissue even though their antigenicity and immunogenicity is restricted.

The Quest for Human Cancer Viruses
TLDR
It was found that in hamsters injected intrapulmonarily with tissue culture fluid of human type 12 adenovirus within 24 hours after birth there was a very high incidence of malignant tumors at the site of injection in from 1 to 3 months. Expand
Oncogenic properties of nucleic acid derived from SV-40 virus.
TLDR
The results suggest that the observation on the oncogenic capacity of nucleic acids would give a clue to resolve the course of cancer from the view point of the infectious nucleic acid. Expand
Spontaneous and experimental malignancies in non‐human primates
TLDR
Contrary to earlier established opinion that tumors in monkeys are found rarely, the large material confirms that monkey tumors are frequent phenomenon and clearly increases with age. Expand
GROWTH CHARACTERISTICS OF MONKEY KIDNEY CELL STRAINS LLC-MK1, LLC-MK2, AND LLC-MK2(NCTC-3196) AND THEIR UTILITY IN VIRUS RESEARCH
