Areas reviewed: The mechanisms of carcinogenesis, the multistage process of cancer development. Evaluations of damage to cellular molecules, especially mutations to DNA, caused by chemicals, radiation, and biological agents such as viruses, and how these agents disrupt the control of cell proliferation and cause other cellular changes that influence the progression of cancer. Basic and preclinical studies examining how compounds in the environment and diet can increase or decrease cancer risk.
