This is not an exact translation of Warburg's "Stoffwechsel der Tumoren" published in Berlin in 1926, but it includes some of his more recent publications, and thus brings his work in its most recent state before the French-reading public. On the whole, the work is highly technical, dealing with the methods used by Warburg in his work on the metabolism of tissues, and with the results obtained by the study of various tissues, especially cancer tissue. The work, thus, is of interest chiefly to the biologist interested in the fundamental problems of the oxidation of tissues, and to the investigator in the field of cancer.
Two chapters of more general interest incorporated within the present volumes are: "The Metabolism of the Cancer Cell" and "The Present State of the Problem of Cancer." As Warburg's epoch-making work is not yet available in English, this translation may bring his methods, results, conclusions
