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 volume provides a comprehensive review of established and novel biomarkers across the continuum of breast cancer. The volume covers topics related to breast cancer risk and prevention, prediction of response to today’s standard therapies, and markers capable of influencing treatment decisions in the near future. Chapter authors combine their wide-ranging expertise to review the current status of the biomarker and to offer their individual perspectives on how biomarkers may be used in future treatments and research. Breast cancer continues to be the most common malignancy diagnosed in women in the Western world. While there are multiple treatment approaches for breast cancer, today more than ever we recognize that each tumor is unique. The challenge ahead is to consider how to best use validated and novel biomarkers to select the most appropriate treatment(s) for individual patients.

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.

In collaboration with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), this timely volume provides a comprehensive review on all areas of breast cancer survivorship research, highlighting research that is underway or in development. The range of topics covered include the biology and management of fatigue and cognitive dysfunction on breast cancer survivorship, the biology and management of Neuropathy and Arthralgias, the ongoing research on the biology of diet and lifestyle interventions in survivors, and more. With the tremendous growth in the number of breast cancer survivors, researchers have moved beyond describing the outcomes of breast cancer treatments and are focusing their research on understanding the mechanisms underlying the development of the late effects of breast cancer treatment, as well as the development and evaluation of interventions to mitigate some of the persistent symptoms—topics which are also explored in this volume. In addition, current research on how to improve survivorship and reduce recurrence of breast cancer through behavioral and lifestyle modifications is also discussed.

Breast cancer remains the most common invasive cancer among women. The primary patients of breast cancer are adult women who are approaching or have reached menopause; 90 percent of new cases in U.S. women in 2009 were diagnosed at age 45 or older. Growing knowledge of the complexity of breast cancer stimulated a transition in breast cancer research toward elucidating how external factors may influence the etiology of breast cancer. Breast Cancer and the Environment reviews the current evidence on a selection of environmental risk factors for breast cancer, considers gene-environment interactions in breast cancer, and explores evidence-based actions that might reduce the risk of breast cancer. The book also recommends further integrative research into the elements of the biology of breast development and carcinogenesis, including the influence of exposure to a variety of environmental factors during potential windows of susceptibility during the full life course, potential interventions to reduce risk, and better tools for assessing the carcinogenicity of environmental factors. For a limited set of risk factors, evidence suggests that action can be taken in ways that may reduce risk for breast cancer for many women: avoiding unnecessary medical radiation throughout life, avoiding the use of some forms of postmenopausal hormone therapy, avoiding smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, increasing physical activity, and minimizing weight gain. Breast Cancer and the Environment sets a direction and a focus for future research efforts. The book will be of special interest to medical researchers, patient advocacy groups, and public health professionals.

Cancer is a group of different diseases (over 100) characterised by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. Cancer can arise in many sites and behave differently depending on its organ of origin. If a cancer spreads (metastasises), the new tumour bears the same name as the original (primary) tumour. Significant progress has been made in recent years in the battle against cancer and in understanding its underlying biological mechanisms. This research progress has resulted in many experimental treatments and cures which establish hope for wide-spread cures. This book brings together important research from around the world in this frontal 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.
