Bloom's syndrome provides cancer researchers with a powerful model to study the biological mechanisms that lead to the development of human cancers. Understanding how cancer develops in Bloom's syndrome will help explain how cancer develops in the general population.
The Cancer Research Publicity Campaign is a strategic effort to broaden public awareness of Bloom's syndrome and its fundamental relationship to cancer. The primary goal is to obtain permissions from 100 cancer research organizations worldwide to present on their websites a compelling summary of Bloom's syndrome and cancer.
See, also, BSA doctrine regarding cancer.
the distribution of cancers in BS is, except for age of onset,
essentially that of other people,
BS then in truth is the model par
excellence for determining the steps that lead to the
promotion of the generality of human cancer."
