Changes in Cancer and in Precancerous Conditions
Before the Academy of Medicine, Sloss and Reding recently presented researches to show that changes in the sugar regulatory mechanism are manifest in the precancerous stage; they differ from the changes of the cancerous stage only in the matter of intensity. In avowedly cancerous subjects there is a more or less accentuated disturbance of sugar regulation. This disorder is manifested by the considerable height and by the retardation of the peak of the hyperglycemia curve; also by the duration of the phase of hyperglycemia.
