During the growth of subcutaneously transplanted mammary carcinomas or lymphosarcomas in mice the dry weight of the host carcass progressively decreases while the dry weight of the tumor-free liver of the host progressively increases. This dry liver weight gain is proportional to the dry tumor weight increase.
