On the     othei. hand, the impor-  (ance of    the ages at ,  which cancer  appeared     had aoqiuired - greater significance.      The experimental  investi-'  gatron had yielded   lesults of remar-  k*able,     signilicance, raising questions  in connection  wilh  cancer  which had  not been    'suspected     before;* thus it  had been possib.e  to Peipetnate mal-  jgnant n;ew     growths tluough-succcs-  si\e    generations of     mice in such a  \\fiy    that (he    cancer cells had appealed   to>     be gifted   with power of  'perpetual  mult plication   in  favorable  circumstances.     This power was not,  however, manifested at all times and  under all     conditions.       The results'  which     had    been obtained in     mice  pointed      to   the'     necessity  for  yet  more closely studying the process-of  cell   multiplication,      for  in  this'-'ab-  nquiial      proliferation   and  reproduction of cells appeared to lie the clue  to the solution of the mystery.    This  property     definitely separated cancer f  from  the     known   infective diseases.  In conlirmantion of this healthy mice  when kept  lor     long pei iods iu_ association  with mice s'jffeiing from canter, had not acquired  the disease. A  large amount ���������   ol  experimental  woik  had    also   been     done in connectn m  .with   the    treatment     of malignant  growths.
