Inflammation is now recognized as a major factor in the etiology of many types of cancer. The proposed research will open new understanding of the role of the chemical changes to proteins and DNA brought about by the immune cells attracted to the site of inflammation. The overall chemical damage contributes strongly to the process leading to cancer.
