Tracing cancer pathogen


, : Tracing cancer pathogen. Indian Journal of Cancer 10(2): 259-260

The cancer pathogene was traced by studying the loss of contact inhibition in human leukosis cells. Microscopic studies showed elongated particles which were proposed as a new human leukosis virus. The newly formed virus fuses with the same vacuole as a means of transport and leaves the cell to begin an independent life. This virus enters another cell and forces it to act according to the virus program. All infected cells lose their growth control function and divide in irrational and disorderly ways. The mechanism of action was discovered by studying the interaction of cellular and viral genomes. Viral antigens were determined by immunofluorescence and induction of immunity in hamsters. This discovery may be important in protecting people against cancer.
