  BioMed Central | Full text | Suppression of colitis-related mouse colon carcinogenesis by a COX-2 inhibitor and PPAR ...
The precise mechanisms of the IBD-related carcinogenesis process are largely unclear, although it is generally assumed that IBD-related carcinogenesis occurs as a result of chronic inflammation [3].
Several agents, such as folic acid, short chain fatty acid (butyrate), ursodeoxycholic acid, and 5-aminosalicylic acid, have been suggested to be useful for prevention of CRC in UC Epidemiological studies have shown that prolonged use of aspirin is associated with a reduced risk of CRC [5].
The pathogenesis of IBD-associated colorectal carcinogenesis is widely believed to involve a step-wise progression from inflamed and hyperplastic epithelia through flat dysplasia to finally adenocarcinoma [30].

  Carcinogenesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carcinogenesis (meaning literally, the creation of cancer) is the process by which normal cells are transformed into cancer cells.
Carcinogenesis is caused by this mutation of the genetic material of normal cells, which upsets the normal balance between proliferation and cell death.
There are a number of theories of carcinogenesis and cancer treatment which fall outside the mainstream of scientific opinion, due to lack of scientific rationale, logic, or evidence base.

 Curtis C. Harris, Chief of Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
In 1981, he was appointed Chief of the Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis and chief of its Molecular Genetics and Carcinogenesis Section.
His research on environmental carcinogenesis, cancer risk factors and molecular genetics of human carcinogenesis has significantly impacted the field of cancer risk assessment and our understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of human cancer.
He serves as an Executive Editor of the journal, "Carcinogenesis" and has held elected offices in scholarly societies or non-profit foundations including the American Association of Cancer Research, the International Society of Differentiation, the Keystone Symposia of Cellular and Molecular Biology, and the Aspen Cancer Conference.

 Carcinogenesis
This review highlights current knowledge of environmental factors in carcinogenesis and their cellular targets.
The hypothesis that environmental factors influence carcinogenesis is widely supported by both epidemiological and experimental studies.
The fact that only a small fraction of cancers can be attributed to germline mutations in cancer-related genes further buttresses the importance of environmental factors in carcinogenesis.

 Journal of Carcinogenesis |
Journal of Carcinogenesis considers manuscripts in many areas of carcinogenesis including: physical and chemical carcinogenesis and mutagenesis; processes influencing or modulating carcinogenesis, such as DNA repair; genetics, nutrition, and metabolism of carcinogens; the mechanism of action of carcinogens and modulating agents; epidemiological studies; and, the formation, detection, identification, and quantification of environmental carcinogens.
Despite the advances in the treatment of cancer and the increasing knowledge of the processes responsible for the disease, there is a gap in the understanding of molecular events leading to cancer and the mechanisms of action by anticancer agents.
Journal of Carcinogenesis considers manuscripts spanning a wide range of scientific interests, as long as the results and conclusions are scientifically justified and not misleading.

 EPA - Endocrine | 70714-01 P450 Link Between Hormonal and Chemical Carcinogenesis
This concept has evolved from studies of the biogenesis and characteristics of 2- and 4- hydroxylated catechol metabolites of Es (2- and 4-OH-CEs) which may damage DNA via oxygen free radicals generatedby redox cycling of CEs or by causing depurinating adducts via their quinone metabolites.
The overall hypothesis states that 2- and 4-OH- CEs generated in the gland, in particular 4-OH-CEs, are important determinants of P450- mediated Es role in carcinogenesis, in particular, in the early initiating stages of thedisease.
The relevance of this postulate to breast cancer is supported by recent cytochemical findingsthat all of the forms of P450 required for such a mechanism are expressed in ductal epithelial cells in the normal humanbreast.
