An external electrical source of low magnitude was used in a series of experiments to alter inherent tumor potentials in mice. While no significant increase of tumor growth was noted in the acceleration group, total tumor regressions were obtained in the inhibition group. Preliminary studies with leukemia did not yield significant results.
