Conducted in Oslo, the Second International Conference on Theories of Carcinogenesis concentrated on discussion of theories, both current and older, while also attempting to formulate new ones. The participants tried to create a system by using all the existing fragmentary knowledge about cancer and carcinogenesis. Internationally recognized as leaders in the field, contributors to this volume all spoke and submitted manuscripts at the conference. They were asked to discuss principles and theories, rather than focusing on their own experimental setups and results. Covering a wide range of topics, the resulting papers include cell proliferation, metastasis, oncogenes (both proto- and anti-) carcinogens, effects of carcinogenesis, genetic alterations, viruses, immunology, and radiation. Also detailed are public attitudes toward cancer, as well as attitudes of professionals in cancer research.
