The topic of the present workshop was once pointed out a number of years in the past and used to be thought of by means of the operating team of the nationwide huge Bowel melanoma venture to be a suitable workshop subject. even supposing the topic used to be vital then, it used to be impossible to behavior this kind of workshop at the moment. for the time being, not just did the issues linked to colorectal metastasis nonetheless exist, yet new insights at the biology and therapy of colorectal melanoma metastasis emerged, making the workshop subject in particular very important and appropriate. With enter from knowledgeable making plans Committee, a different software was once designed to supply a chance for info alternate among easy scientists and scientific investigators. the printed lawsuits replicate the association of the workshop which consisted of 5 sections: part I. The Biology of Colorectal melanoma Metastasis co-chaired through Drs. J. Isaiah Fidler and George Poste Controversies within the administration of sufferers with Colorectal melanoma part II.

Three such crypts are shown in Figure 5; a small cluster of cancer cells have invaded into the lamina propria. FIGURE 2. Undifferentiated rectal cancer. Cancer cells form glands very poorly.

Cancers (arrows) are approximately the same size. (PAS, 25x) FIGURE 5. Carcinoma of the ascending colon. Three crypts (arrows) are budding cancer cells into the crypt lumen; a small cluster of cancer cells (c) infiltrates the lamina propria.

The natural history of these patients was also studied in our sample (Figure 1) and also should be studied and considered by those whose therapeutic efforts involve such lesions. Their therapeutic trials should either be randomized or compared critically with the natural history of disease. When the inception, growth, and spread of cancer can be seen clinically in each patient and when biological manipulations can be used to kill all cancer cells, the natural history of cancer will have only historical interest.
