strain_life_disease Develop spontaneous plasmacytomas after about 8 months of age, with an incidence of about 30% in males and 16% in females. These develop rapidly, and may be detected by palpation. They usually develop in the ileocoecal lymph nodes, and about 60% of them synthesise monoclonal immunoglobulins (Bence-Jones proteins) of IgG1 (35%), IgE (36%) or IgA classes. Surgical removal of ileocaecal lymph nodes decreases plasmacytoma incidence to less than 2% (Moriame et al 1977). Ultrastructure of the tumours described by Burtonboy et al (1978). Tumours are transplantable in solid or ascites form, and retain their secretory properties through successive passages (Bazin et al 1972, Bazin et al 1973, Bazin 1974, Bazin et al 1974a,b, Beckers and Bazin 1978). More than 800 transplantable immunocytomas are now available. 1004
