Introduction The major hemopoietic neoplasm of the domestic mammals is lymphosarcoma, which is characterized by the infiltration of the lymph nodes and other organs by malignant cells of the lymphoid series.
Only in about 10% of cases of lymphosarcoma in the domestic mammals is there a high level of circulating lymphoid cells, and the term “leukemia” is used here t o describe the disease complex rather than a strict hematological situation. Investigations of the etiology of leukemia have been based mainly on the possibility t h a t a virus may be involved. Viruses are the most obvious candidates in view of their known association with the avian and murine leukemias. T o test this hypothesis, studies have been made 39 40 OSWALD JARRETT during the last 20 years on the epidemiology and transmissibility of the disease, particularly in cattle and cats, and more recently the techniques of electron microscopy and cell culture have been used.
