Abstract

A LEUKAEMOGENIC virus has been isolated from radiation-induced lymphomas in C57BL mice1 and from various tissues collected 5–10 days after stopping irradiation2, and serially passaged in isologous mice. This virus is apparently present during post-natal life in non-irradiated C57BL mice, and irradiation “releases” the virus and contributes in other ways to radiation leukaemogenesis3,4.
