Abstract

THE finding of considerable numbers of mitotic figures in the hæmopoietic organs of normal healthy animals and in the neoplastic tissues of tumour-bearing animals after colchicine administration has led many students to suspect an inter-relationship between mitosis and the alkaloid. But the effect of colchicine in slowing down the rate of growth of neoplastic tissue has not been reported.
