Abstract

The Joint International Conference on Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia and Differentiation Therapy held from October 4-7, 2001 in Rome, Italy was part of a series of biannual conferences, which had its beginnings in Sardinia in 1985, with the goal of establishing differentiation induction and programmed cell death as cancer cell-selective therapies. As in the past, the organizers of this meeting joined basic and clinical investigators in workshops to establish collaboration and information exchange. Because only a portion of the conference is summarized, additional information can be obtained from the abstracts published in Journal of Biological Regulators and Homeostatic Agents, Volume 15, 2001. The next International Conference on Differentiation Therapy will be held in Shanghai from October 24-27, 2003.
