Summary:This volume provides an up-to-date survey of current laboratory and, mainly, clinical research on the diagnostic and treatment options in primary breast cancer. The chapters derive from the invited expert lectures presented at the 5th International Conference of Primary Breast Cancer held in St. Gallen, Switzerland, in March 1995. The papers cover relevant issues such as epidemiology and genetics as well as the biology of breast cancer, prognosis of response and tumor markers, screening and treatment of DCIS, surgery for early breast cancer, radiotherapy as part of primary management, adjuvant systemic cytotoxic and endocrine therapies, and, for the first time, women's health perceptions and breast cancer. As at previous conferences, this one also closed with an international consensus on the primary treatment of breast cancer, formulated by American, European, and Australian experts in various treatment modalities and biostatics. These 1995 treatment recommendations encompass pratical decisions outside of clinical trials and future research questions
