For many years roentgen therapy has been the most satisfactory method of treatment of the chronic leukemias. It is generally agreed that life is not materially prolonged by irradiation, but in favorable cases symptomatic and hematologic improvement occurs for variable periods of time. Some patients experience uncomfortable reactions to treatment, others become refractory to irradiation, and occasionally an alarming depression of the red and white blood cells occurs. In the absence of specific forms of therapy for the disease, there is need of other palliative measures which may be used in place of, or in conjunction with, roentgen therapy. Interest
