High doses of vitamin A decreased the severity of tumor development in mice inoculated with a murine sarcoma virus; the same doses of vitamin A had no effect on the increased tumorigenesis seen in animals severely stressed with thermal injury or the increased tumorigenesis induced by exogenous glucocorticoid administration
