Abstract

In a previous communication, evidence was given1 indicating the presence in human cancer tissue of a fraction, or fractions, the fluorescent spectra of which were similar to, if not identical with, those produced by methylcholanthrene. The fluorescence produced in a similarly treated lipoid fraction obtained from non-cancerous livers was considerably weaker, and appeared in a different region of the spectrum.
