Either deficient or excessive hormone production has been observed with respect to some rather bizarre clinical manifestations. Starting with the synthesis or isolation of pure hormones in the early 30s, estrogens (the female sex hormones) and androgens (the male sex hormones) have become readily available for clinical and other uses and their physiologic activity has been intensively studied. The relationship between hormones and cancer was perhaps one of the earliest research areas in cancer. In the early work of the 20s it was clearly shown in experimental animals that under certain conditions both endogenous and exogenous hormones could induce certain cancers and tumors. More recently, attention has been focused on the use of androgenic anabolic steroids by athletes as body builders and the widescale multiple use of estrogens in terms of carcinogenic hazard. Most striking in recent years are the potential adverse effects of estrogens relevant to sterility, gall bladder disease, and neoplasia. The pervasive environmental hazard contributed by estrogens may arise from variant sources. Such sources may be: (a) endogenous hormones, (b) estrogenic compounds occurring naturally in foods or as fungal con taminants in food stuffs, ( c) estrogens added to livestock feed, (d) estrogenic additives to cosmetics, (e) oral contraceptives, and (f) estrogens used clinically for threatened abortions, lactation suppres sion, menstrual anomalies, and therapeutic treatment of certain forms of cancer.

In the past decade there has been a growing public interest and resurgence in research in the field of hormonal carcinogenesis. This is due to the widespread use of therapeutic hormonal agents worldwide and to the increasing awareness of the causal association of hormones, both endogenous and exogenously administered, and

Since our previous symposium in 1995, the pace of research in hormones and cancer has accelerated. Progress in our understanding of hormonal carcinogenic processes has been a direct result of the advances made in cell biology, endocrinology, and carcinogenesis at the molecular level. The newer fields of molecular genetics and

It has been over a decade since the First International Symposium on Hormonal Carcinogenesis convened in 199 1. Since then, the field has rapidly expanded with considerable progress in both breast and prostate cancers; while ovarian and endometrial cancer have been hampered, in part, due to the absence of suitable
