Tobacco use is associated with the development of cancers in multiple organ sites in humans. This volume will present the latest information on the epidemiology of tobacco-related cancers, the mechanisms by which tobacco carcinogens and co-carcinogens induce cancer in these organ sites, and strategies for the prevention of tobacco-related cancers. Particular emphasis will be placed on new developments in the epidemiology, carcinogenesis and prevention of tobacco-related cancers in the last 5 – 10 years. Authors are encouraged to submit original manuscripts and review articles on topics of relevance to the role of tobacco in the epidemiology, etiology and prevention of tobacco –related cancers.
