This collection of thoughtful and provocative articles focused on the key issues in apoptosis, ranges from the role of apoptosis in defining the response of authentic tumor populations to chemotherapeutic agent s to the mechanisms coupling DNA damage to the activation pathway of a poptosis. It reviews the profusion of new signaling, modulating, and e ffector molecules now implicated in apoptosis and whether other routes to "programmed" cell death may exist. Also addressed are the nature o f the molecules that will either constitute targets for future drugs o r influence the efficacy of current therapies, as well as mechanistic questions on the control of apoptosis.
