The recent expansion of work in the field of breast cancer inevitably will hasten discoveries that will have impact on patient outcome. The breadth of this research that spans basic science, clinical medicine, epidemiology, and public policy poses difficulties for investigators. Not only is it necessary to be facile in comprehending ideas from many disciplines, but also important to understand the public implications of these discoveries. Thus, there is a need for an information source that can summarize the field, and synthesize conclusions from experts representing the diverse disciplines that make up breast cancer research. Because of this need, the editor-in-chief and the publishers at IOS Press have reconfigured the journal Breast Disease. Each volume of Breast Disease will be devoted to an in-depth analysis of the scientific and public implications of recent research on a specific problem in breast cancer. Thus, the reviews will not only discuss recent discoveries but will also reflect on their impact in breast cancer research or clinical management. The topics discussed will cover basic cellular and molecular biology, epidemiology, genetics, clinical research, imaging, social and legal issues, in a series of concise reviews and commentaries. We believe that Breast Disease will be a timely and important addition to the information needs of scientists, clinicians, and policy makers.
