The current workshop had its orlglns in discussions between Alexander Hollaender, Oddvar Nygaard, Donald Borg, Richard Setlow and Victor Bond at the desire for a symposium that will care for a large spectrum of urgent topics regarding the physics, chemistry, and organic activities of ionizing radiations, and the theoretical and functional difficulties of probability evaluation. It quickly turned obvious that the spectrum of topics thought of was once too extensive for the specified intensity of insurance; in reality, it appeared un most probably that the convention members may have the historical past wisdom to span the gamut. for that reason, separate conferences have been determined upon, the 1st of which, comparability of Mechanisms of Carcinogenesis by way of Radiation and Chemical brokers, used to be held on the nationwide Bureau of criteria, Gaithersburg on December 6-7, 1983. The assembly used to be backed via the NCI. the second one assembly has emerged because the current workshop at Brookhaven nationwide Laboratory. An interface among the 2 meetings has been supplied through Michael Fry and Donald Borg, who've summarized the salient issues emanating from the NCI Symposium. We meant that the 1st convention should still concentrate on the elemental mechanisms of radiation and chemical carcinogenesis, whereas the second one, the current assembly, could emphasize exposure-response relationships, fairly the theoretical and useful related ities and ameliorations among publicity to chemical cancer causing agents in comparison to publicity to ionizing radiation.
