Abstract

Several tumors of mice and rats including Ehrlich-carcinoma, Sarcoma 180, Yoshida H130, Walker carcinosarcoma, T8 uterine epithelioma, and Flexner-Jobling carcinoma, induced an increase in plasma FFA. Walker carcinosarcoma induced a strong mobilization of FFA which depleted the stores of triglycerides in the adipose tissue. This effect was not due to the reduction of food intake shown by Walker-bearing animals. It is suggested that Walker tumor was producing factors able to mobilize lipids from adipose tissue.
