This 12 months notes significant adjustments within the annual Detroit melanoma Symposium. the 1st is our goal of choosing most sensible­ ics of wide curiosity to the melanoma neighborhood and analyzing the topic from either a simple laboratory and medical perspective. during this method, the significance of either parts of melanoma study are famous and the interaction among them emphasised. extra, we think that Symposia corresponding to this act to stimulate the elemental scientist and clinician to proceed their reviews with the recognize­ ledge of the influence that every has upon the opposite and the nec­ essary cooperation required to resolve the melanoma challenge. the second one swap is the booklet of this Symposium. The pre­ vious 16 weren't devoted to manuscript shape. Given the swap in layout and motive of the sequence, we think that this and next volumes will make vital contributions to the melanoma literature. the subject of "Biology and remedy of Acute Leukemia" was once selected for the 1st Symposium due to its historic signif­ icance in melanoma chemotherapy. The healing reason for human leukemia is the results of knowing the elemental tumor biology principally derived from transplantable leukemias in exper­ imental animals. it really is via those versions, as mentioned by means of Dr. Fred Valeriote, that we realized the mobile kinetics of leukemia, the antileukemic results of recent brokers and the ef­ fect of progress perturbation by way of quite a few chemotherapeutic brokers and their combinations.
