Cancer Prevention International (CPI) was an international journal devoted to publishing scholarly works in the broad field of cancer prevention, detection, and control. To this end it will cover such areas as basic mechanisms of cancer prevention, chemoprevention, nutrition, alcohol, tobacco, and environmental sciences, epidemiologic and behavioral studies, prevention clinical trials, and other areas related to prevention and control of cancer.
