    The newly-arisen Devil facial tumour disease 2 (DFT2) reveals a mechanism for the emergence of a contagious cancer

    Alison Caldwell et al.
    A recently discovered contagious cancer in the Tasmanian devil has the potential to become widespread in the population due to the loss of histocompatibility antigens that are allogeneic to its hosts.
