This volume, with contributions from the most recognized experts in preventive strategies in breast cancer, presents the accepted as well as the novel ideas that have been introduced for the prevention of breast cancer. There is no single preventive agent that can stop the incidence of breast cancer—the malignant disease most frequently diagnosed in women of all races and nationalities. Furthermore, its incidence around the globe is increasing in industrialized countries. The worldwide incidence of breast cancer has increased 30-40% since the 1970s, reaching an excess of 1,390,000 new cases and a mortality of more than 460,000 cases in 2015. Therefore, what is needed is the development of rational strategies for the prevention of this fatal disease.

This book is a logical companion volume to Women at High Risk to Breast Cancer (Kluwer, 1989) edited by me previously. It distinguishes two aspects of current ap proaches to clinical breast cancer prevention. The first is the need to advise individ ual women on how they might reduce their personal risk, while the second is the design of measures aimed at reducing the total incidence of breast cancer in the community. While the former is a problem faced daily by clinicians, the latter is a goal which will involve large scale, carefully planned interventional studies. Because knowledge of the risk factors for breast cancer is incomplete and clinical trial reports are scarce, there is as yet, no scientifically-based model for personal breast cancer prevention. Nevertheless, widespread publicity associated with breast screening programmes has created a large group of highly anxious women who have been informed that they are at higher than average risk to the disease. They are con cerned by the personal threat posed by a family history of the disease and by the al leged dangers of obesity, diet, alcohol, or the use of hormonal agents such as oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy.

Breast cancer is a malignant tumour that has developed from cells of the breast. A malignant tumour is a group of cancer cells that may invade surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it as well. The main types of breast cancer are ductal carcinoma in situ, invasive ductal carcinoma, lobular carcinoma in situ, invasive lobular carcinoma, medullary carcinoma, and Paget's disease of the nipple. About 1 of 8 women will get it in her lifetime. This new book presents state-of-the-art research in this fast-moving field.

Progress in Clinical and Biological Research, Volume 396 Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Carcinogenesis and Risk Assessment, Held in Austin, Texas, November 29–December 2, 1995 C. Marcelo Aldaz, Michael N. Gould, John McLachlan, and Thomas J. Slaga, Editors Accounting for 150 cancers per 100,000 people at risk, breast cancer and gynecological cancer together constitute a major public health concern. These cancers have a common target population, and many also have common etiological features, including hormonal factors, genetic changes in genes such as BRCA1, and environmental factors such as ionizing radiation, viruses, chemical xenobiotics, diet, and nutrition. Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers explores important environmental and genetic factors that are key to the induction of these cancers. The book takes a broad perspective, with chapters contributed by laboratory investigators and clinicians, as well as by epidemiologists. It emphasizes validation and issues of extrapolation from animal models to humans and their impact on risk assessment, and it also discusses intervention strategies in terms of chemoprevention, which has the potential to reduce the morbidity and mortality from these cancers in women. Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers explores a wide variety of topics, including: recent advances in the molecular genetics of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer molecular perspectives on cancer, the cell cycle, and the inherited disorder ataxia-telangiectasia genotoxicity of environmental agents in human mammary epithelial cells rodent model of reproductive tract leiomyomata estrogens and the genetic control of tumor growth Featuring 19 outstanding presentations from leading researchers in an array of disciplines, Etiology of Breast and Gynecological Cancers is an important resource for investigators and clinicians in oncology, epidemiology, and public health, providing new understanding of the sources of these disorders as well as new directions for treatment and prevention.

The European Organization for Cooperation in Cancer Prevention Studies (ECP) was established in 1981 to promote collaboration between scientists working in the various European countries on cancer causation and prevention. In order to achieve this aim, various working group- to deal with specific cancers or aspects of cancer aetiology, and to explore the opportunities for advances on a cooperative European basis - were established. It was also decided to hold annual symposia to draw general attention to fields in which there seemed to be many opportunities for progress in matters of prevention. These symposia have been devoted to themes of high priority to cancer prevention: "Tobacco and Cancer" (1983), "Hormones and Sexual Factors in Human Cancer Aetiology" (1984), "Diet and Human Carcinogenesis" (1985), "Concepts and Theories in Carcinogenesis" (1986)," Preventive Strategies for Cancer related to Immune Deficiencies" (1987), "Gastric Carcinogenesis" (1988), and "Breast, Ovarian and Endometrial Cancer: Aetiological and Epidemiological Relationships" (1989). This volume contains the proceedings of the 1990 ECP symposium held in Heidelberg, FRG, at the Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum (DKFZ), on April 2-3 on "Causation and Prevention of Human Cancer". We are indebted to the speakers for their contribution during the symposium and for their prompt submission of manuscripts. We are grateful to the sponsors, SmithKline Diagnostics and Rohm Pharma. Our special thanks go to Dr M.C. stanei-Gueur for preparing and typing the camera forms of all manuscripts.
