Discussion of Session
Moderator (Oscar Sudilovsky): After such interesting presentations I think it is time to concentrate on the mechanistic similarities between tumor promotion and progression. Dr. Pitot, if I interpret him correctly, said that the effect of promoting agents can extend to cells in the stage of progression, while Dr. Slaga expressed the opinion that both processes exist as a continuum. So I would like to start the discussion by asking Dr. Pitot how he would contrast his belief with those of Dr. Slaga.
