By David Schottenfeld (auth.), Guy R. Newell, Waun Ki Hong (eds.)

The papers contained during this quantity have been offered ati the Golden Jubilee melanoma Prevention convention, "The Biology and Prevention of Aerodigestive Tract Cancers," backed via The collage of Texas M. D. Anderson melanoma middle in Houston, Texas, February 21-23, 1991. the aim of the convention was once to additional the knowledge of the biology, epidemiology, and prevention of aerodigestive tract cancers. Advances in less than­ status the biology of aerodigestive tract cancers have ended in profitable early chemoprevention trials. Chemopreventive brokers in present use are able 9f reversing premalignant lesions, in addition to lowering the variety of moment basic cancers of the top and neck. those trials carry the promise that powerful prevention equipment for those cancers may be coming near near within the foreseeable destiny. Carcinogenic exposures seem to impact the entiry epithelial lining of the higher aerodigestive tract, a phenomena defined as "field cancerization. " This procedure contributes to the advance of either synchronous and metachronous aerodigestive tract cancers. It additionally presents a legitimate purpose for the chemoprevention of those cancers. Animal types are very important for determining the severe elements of box cancerization and for checking out probably new chemopreventive brokers and regimens. The hamster lung carcinogen­ esis version and the hamster cheek version are mentioned. Aerodigestive tract cancers account for approximately 20% of newly clinically determined invasive cancers. Cigarette smoking and alcohol intake are an important probability components for those cancers.
