Abstract

Cancer chemoprevention uses noncytotoxic drugs or nutrients to prevent, retard, or delay carcinogenesis. The future of cancer chemoprevention depends on understanding key cellular growth and proliferation-controlling events, developing markers of molecular carcinogenesis, surrogate endpoint biomarkers, and targeted chemopreventive approaches.
