As early as 1948, Virginia (Wuerthele-Caspe) Livingston and her associates have published a series of papers describing a pleomorphic, acid-fast bacterium which they isolated from cancer tissues and body fluids of patients with malignant neoplasms. Livingston and Alexander-Jackson (1970) published a full description of the organism(s) and proposed the name Progenitor cryptocides as a new taxon within the Actinomycetales. They reported that this bacterium crossreacts antigenically with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, with which it shares the property of acid fastness.
