MetadataShow full item record
With a disease such as cancer, examination of all etiological possibilities especially deliniation of its hereditary extent is necessary to facilitate control of the disease. This paper, however, necessarily is limited to the hereditary contribution to the cancerogenesis. The first part of this paper will deal with a deliniation of the problem, an explanation of terms, and of tools used in the gathering of data. The second part will deal with an examination of the results of various investigations with an eye to finding some relatively concrete data. The third part of this paper will include a synthesis of material, an analysis of my findings, and a prospectus into the future of genetic investigation of malignant diseases.
