This volume contains the main proceedings of the fourth international conference on "Cancer Prevention 2006," which was held during February 1618, 2006, in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Written by international experts in the field, the book comprises a comprehensive update on the most recent developments in the upsurging fields of molecular biology and cancer genetics and their interactions with clinical epidemiology and cancer prevention at various levels.

From the reviews:

"This is the volume 174 in the Recent Results in Cancer Research series. This is an international approach, with the considerably varied perspectives of the 75 authors. Cancer Prevention is useful for physicians in epidemiology and for oncologists who design and participate in clinical trials. Basic scientists (non-MDs) and graduate students in molecular biology, genetics, epidemiology, and public health may find this book interesting." (James R. Egner, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 298 (1), July, 2007)
