The 9th Annual Pezcoller Symposium entitled "The Biology of Tumors" was once held in Rovereto, Italy, June 4-7, 1997. It concerned with the genetic mechanisms underlying het­ erogeneity of tumor phone populations and tumor phone differentiation, on interactions be­ tween tumor cells and cells of host defenses, and the mechanisms of angiogenesis. With shows on the innovative of growth and stimulating discussions, this symposium addressed concerns regarding phenomena keen on phone legislation and mobile interactions as made up our minds by way of activated genes during the applicable and well timed media­ tion of gene items. very important methodologies that might enable scientists to degree dif­ ferentially genes and gene items and therefore validate a number of the mechanisms of keep watch over at present proposed have been thought of, as have been the molecular foundation of tumor popularity by means of the immune procedure, interactions among cells and molecular mechanisms of cellphone regula­ tion as they're stricken by or carried out via those interactions. The molecular and mobile mechanisms of tumor vascularization have been additionally mentioned. It was once famous that angiogenesis offers a possible web site of healing intervention and this makes it much more vital to appreciate the mechanisms underlying it. we want to thank the individuals within the symposium for his or her sizeable contribu­ tions and their participation within the lively discussions that undefined. we'd additionally wish to thank Drs.
