Cancer is the leading cause of death in many countries, and digestive cancer is one of the most common types of neoplasms. Advances in research on the management of digestive cancer therefore represent an important contribution to the welfare of humankind throughout the world. The VICC Kyoto International Symposium on Recent Advances in the Management of Digestive Cancer was held in Kyoto from March 31 to April 2, 1993 under the presidency of Dr. T. Takahashi of the Kyoto Prefectural Vniversity of Medicine. At this event, leading researchers and clinicians presented new findings and the latest results of clinical trials concerning digestive cancers. The VICC President and other members of the Executive Committee of the VICC also gave speeches on their own fields, and more than 1000 participants from 28 countries were very well received. This book presents the proceedings of this symposium. In addition to 30 selected papers presented at special lectures and symposia by invited speakers, this book contains 230 free papers presented at poster sessions during this conference.
