Dr. Gross discusses the experimental and naturally occurring benign and malignant tumors of viral etiology. Because the neoplasms in which the relationship to a virus is proven occur in amphibian, avian, and lower mammalian species, the major part of this book is concerned with a discussion of such tumors. In each instance there is presented an interesting historical background, as well as current research developments in the demonstration of various oncogenic viruses. The author gives a detailed presentation of his own experiments demonstrating the viral transmission of mouse leukemia and tumors caused by the mouse parotid tumor (polyoma) virus.
