INFLUENCE OF CARBAMIC ESTERS (URETHANES) ON EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL TUMOURS

Abstract

IN a comprehensive joint investigation of the action of various compounds upon the growth of experimental tumours, attention was paid to that heterogeneous class of substances which have from time to time been reported as producing effects upon the mitotic cycle (“le syndrome mitoclasique”1) either in animals or plants. Among these substances, the caryoclastic poisons of Dustin and his school2, ethyl phenylcarbamate ('phenylurethane') (I) and its
