Sample text

In fact, a sequential progression of mutations is required to produce a bona fide tumor cell. In the classical model of initiation, promotion, and progression, a genetic mutation first endows a somatic cell with limitless replicative potential or another growth or survival advantage from other cells in its environment. Alone, this mutation is not sufficient to give rise to a tumor, as the cell remains constrained by environmental factors. A second mutation (or series of mutations) further adds to the cell’s ability to outcompete its neighbors in this environment, leading to its potential expansion into a recognizable tumor mass.

S. Congress ordered the development of the first Report on Carcinogens (RoC). The report, designed to educate the public and health professionals about potential cancer hazards, is now required by law to be released every 2 years by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. 1 Although no similar report has been developed relative to ­companion animals, it is reasonable to assume that considerable overlap would exist between such a list and the RoC. The latest RoC is the first to include neutrons, x- and gamma-radiation and viruses (Hepatitis B virus, Hepatitis C virus, and human papillomavirus) as carcinogens.

3 This is less surprising when we consider the fact that commonly affected genes are multifunctional and are parts of complex interactive networks or circuits,4 so a mutation may only alter gene function along one biochemical pathway, leaving its interactions with other pathways intact. Another intriguing observation is that mutations that contribute to most sporadic cancers are restricted to a small subset of genes,5,6 many of which are also associated with heritable cancer syndromes. These observations have given rise to competing contemporary theories on the origins of cancer, which are addressed in Table 2-1.
