Colorectal cancer is a major public health problem in virtually all of the industrialized nations of the world. This book compiles the most recent and important progress made worldwide in the primary and secondary prevention of large bowel cancer and in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. The opening chapters present policy guidelines for prevention formulated by the World Health Organization, the EEC and the US National Cancer Institute. Following these, large intervention trials are described and the latest knowledge of metabolic and genetic etiologies leading to neoplasia is discussed. The importance of screening and diagnostic methodology is reflected in the chapters dealing with newer tests and their applications. Finally, approaches to therapy - hormonal, immunotherapy and radiation - are updated.
