Abstract

IN an effort to discover common mechanisms responsible for growth-inhibition of both tissue cells and bacteria, colloidal solutions of carcinogenic compounds (including 1–2–5–6 dibenzanthracene, 3–4 benzpyrene, methylcholanthrene, dimethyl yellow) have been tested systematically by us for possible bacteriostatic action. No very significant results have been obtained.
