The papers contained during this quantity have been awarded ati the Golden Jubilee melanoma Prevention convention, "The Biology and Prevention of Aerodigestive Tract Cancers," subsidized by means of The collage of Texas M. D. Anderson melanoma heart in Houston, Texas, February 21-23, 1991. the aim of the convention was once to additional the certainty 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 pinnacle and neck. those trials carry the promise that potent prevention tools for those cancers can be impending within the foreseeable destiny. Carcinogenic exposures seem to have an effect on the entiry epithelial lining of the higher aerodigestive tract, a phenomena defined as "field cancerization. " This approach contributes to the improvement of either synchronous and metachronous aerodigestive tract cancers. It additionally presents a legitimate reason for the chemoprevention of those cancers. Animal versions are very important for determining the severe elements of box cancerization and for checking out very likely new chemopreventive brokers and regimens. The hamster lung carcinogen esis version and the hamster cheek version are mentioned. Aerodigestive tract cancers account for roughly 20% of newly clinically determined invasive cancers. Cigarette smoking and alcohol intake are an important probability elements for those cancers.
