Heterospecific tumors were transplanted into the transparent, highly vascular cheek pouch membrane of the golden hamster (Mesocricetus auratus). The tumors used for making the transplants were obtained from the laboratory at Boston University and from the Roscoe B. Jackson Memorial Laboratory. Chemically induced tumors produced at Boston University include benzpyrane induced rat fibrosarcomas and a benzpyrane induced guinea pig sarcoma. Frog renal a denocarcinomas and mouse mammary adenocarcinomas have occurred spontaneously in the labora tory stock animals at Boston University. A mouse lymphosarcoma, a mouse malignant melanoma and a mouse sarcoma 180 were obtained from the Roscoe B· Jackson Memorial Laboratory. The hamster cheek pouch is an excellent site for the growth and observation of such tumors. [TRUNCATED]
