Contents Symposium address -- State of the art speakers. Cellular origins of endocrine-related cancers. Mitotic kinases, centrosome amplification, and genomic instability. New developments in steroid receptor interactions. Risk assessment and relevant early biomarkers. Novel strategies for preventing and treatment of endocrine-related cancers. Hormone dependency versus hormone independency. Emerging fields : hormones and colorectal and lung cancers -- Human derived studies. Breast cancer. Lung cancer. Reproductive endometrial cancer. Prostate cancer --Cell/molecular biology and hormone metabolism. Animal models. Breast cancer. Endometrial cancer. Prostate cancer. Liver cancer. Hormone metabolism
Summary 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
