"The broad objective of this symposium on radionuclide carcinogenesis was to update current knowledge of carcinogenesis from internally deposited radionuclides. An encouraging aspect of the symposium was the increased emphasis on hormones, viruses, nonradioactive cocarcinogens, and tumor-promoting agents acting together with radionuclides to induce tumors. From such studies will come an increasing appreciation of the mechanisms of cancer induction as well as a better understanding of potential hazards to man, exposed as he is to the radioactive, biological, and chemical carcinogens characteristic of our sometimes polluted environs. The increased emphasis on retrospective epidemiologic studies in human populations exposed accidentally, occupationally,
