The Fifth Annual Pezcoller Symposium, held in Trento, Italy, June 1993, focused on the specific phenomena leading to programmed cell death (PCD) or apoptosis, and the mechanisms involved. This proceedings volume addresses the genetics and molecular mechanisms determining PCD and the role of this process in cancer and the immune system. The functions of p53, c-myc and bcl-2 in affecting apoptosis in different cell types, and the role of ions and intracellular pH changes and that of intranuclear endonucleases are given particular emphasis as are the effects of anticancer agents, hormone imbalances, and growth factors.
