These four volumes comprlslng "GnRH Analogues in Cancer and Human Reproduction" are a distillation of the presentations of the invited speakers at a landmark International Symposium bearing the same name, organized by one of us (B. L. ) and held in Geneva, SwitLerland in February 1988. The Symposium was truly interdisciplinary spanning gonadal hormone dependent disease including various forms of cancer and ranging to control of fertility, both pro- and conception. The international flavor can be caught from the 480 participants and 259 contributors drawn from 14 countries. The Symposium, and therefore this book, would not have been possible without the backing of The International Commitlee for Research in Reproduction and the sponsorship of the International Society of Gynecologic Endocrinology, The Swiss Society of fertility and Sterility, The University of Geneva School of Medicine, The Swiss Society of Endocrinology and The US foundation for Studies in Reproduction Inc. , and help from the World Health Organization.
