Long-term experimental carcinogenesis studies are the cornerstone of human health protection and risk assessment for drugs and chemicals. Great contributions to the development of bioassay methodology and the understanding of the mechanisms of carcinogenesis were made by Professor Cesare Maltoni at the European Foundation of Oncology and Environmental Sciences \"B. Ramazzini,\" Bologna, Italy. This volume is based on a conference that was held on the first anniversary of Professor Maltoni’s death to honor him and to celebrate the work on carcinogenesis bioassays carried out at the Ramazzini Foundation Cancer Research Center in Italy and at the National Toxicology Program, NIEHS, in the United States. The papers in this volume include reviews of previously unreported findings and amply demonstrate that long-term carcinogenesis bioassays that are carefully designed and carried out do identify carcinogenic potential to humans exposed to environmental, industrial, and occupational agents, chemicals, and products.
