Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A hypothesis is advanced concerning the relationship of poliomyelitis viruses and late developing neoplasia in the central nervous system. The literature is surveyed, and several experimental approaches based upon known evidence of viral and neoplastic behaviour are advanced. The present status of world polio incidence is discussed as it applies to this possible relationship.
