Editorial Reviews

Papers presented at the October 1989 conference cover a broad range of investigations into the mechanisms and inhibition of carcinogenesis. Many focus on mutations and related changes at the level of DNA while others deal with nutritional, immunological, endocrinological, and epidemiological aspects. In all, the various reports address carcinogenesis and its inhibition at virtually every level of biological organization and include research strategies for cancer prevention as pursued by investigators in different parts of the world.
