Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research
Date:11/6/2007

What: To turn back cancer before it has a chance to take root and spread, scientists are increasingly turning their attention to new discoveries in cancer prevention. Leading experts from around the globe are gathering to share the latest research in this expanding and promising new field, with the hope this work will significantly reduce cancer incidence and mortality.

The future of cancer prevention relies heavily on:

  • identifying promising targets for drug development;

  • understanding how personal decisions are linked to cancer and identifying high-risk populations;

  • developing pre-clinical drug-testing models; and

  • tailoring prevention strategies to genetic profiles.

Highlights:

  • New drugs and treatments to prevent cancer
    • Special fruit juice cocktail and prostate cancer prevention
    • The role of green tea in preventing colorectal cancer

  • The emerging link between obesity and cancer
    • The relationship between weight change following diagnosis of breast cancer and survival
    • Weight, type II diabetes and the increased risk for many forms of cancer

  • Lifestyle factors that might influence cancer risk
    • The relationship between diet, exercise and cancer
    • Gender differences in the ability of antioxidants to prevent DNA damage following exposure to sunlight

  • Public health policies and cancer
    • HPV vaccination in poor communities
    • What policies really work in reducing tobacco harm?

  • Diet as a form of prevention
    • Brussels sprouts and broccoli: the science behind their anti-cancer properties
