The preference of viruses for specific cell types was recognized early in the course of virus research. It was relatively easy to conceive of certain viruses as being endowed with sufficient specificity to discriminate between normal and malignant cells. The idea was, indeed, tempting and not readily dismissable. If there should be any tool fine enough to distinguish between the normal and malignant state, a biological tool such as a virus, highly adapted to an intracellular environment, seemed to offer the best chances.
