Abstract

A reasonable model for tumorigenesis, one whieh confers a common mode of action upon retroviruses, DNA-containing viruses, chemical carcinogens and other tumor-eliciting agents takes advantage of the essence of both the oneogene-virogene theory (Huebner and Todaro, 1969) and the proto virus hypothesis (Temin, 1971) and puts them in the context of our current state of knowledge.
