Abstract

The presence of intranuclear acidophilic inclusion bodies and an increased incidence of tumors in frogs receiving cell-free tumor extracts led Lucke (1, 2) to postulate a viral etiology of the renal adenocarcinoma of Rana pipiens (Lucké tumor). Although this conclusion was reached over thirty years ago, propagation of a virus from R. pipiens capable of inducing renal tumors has not been achieved.
