Abstract

SUMMARY

A simple method is described for testing milk specimens from nursing mothers for the presence of RNA-dependent DNA-polymerase activity.

Positive results were obtained in five of 137 women (3.6%) without a family history of breast cancer, and in six of 31 women (19.3 %) with a family history of breast cancer.
