Although most prominent men in the field gave scant consideration to the possibility that cancer may be due to some form of living organism, some notable exceptions to this rule existed.

Authorities of the period tended to lump true cancers into the same category as other “tumors,” including tubercle (at that time not considered to result from an infectious disease), melanosis, and encephaloid (39). With the work of Bichat, published in the first years of the 19th century (40), pathologists began thinking more on the tissue level of disease. However, Bichat’s studies were carried out without the aid of a microscope, and before the development of these instruments in the 1820s and 1830s, no real advances in tumor histology could be made.

He provided evidence that from the tumor, “there can be separated by drying, or filtration, or glycerinization, an agent, presumably living, which, under special conditions, will cause a sarcomatous change in the tissue of a previously normal fowl” (135).
