  • A special emphasis will continue to be placed on the two major endocrine-related cancers, that is, breast and prostate.

  • Other highly relevant cancers to be addressed are ovarian and endometrial.

  • Emerging fields that will be examined are colon, lung, and pancreatic cancers in relation to hormones

About this book


Information gathered from cell-free systems, cell cultures, animal models, and human studies, together will (1) provide important insights to our understanding of hormonal cancer causation, development, and prevention; (2) be the primary objective of these Symposia.
