The special issue on cancer in Brain, Behavior, and Immunity commemorates the tenth anniversary of the 2003 Brain, Behavior, and Immunity supplement, "Biological Mechanisms of Psychosocial Effects on Disease: Implications for Cancer Control exit disclaimer," a landmark volume on biobehavioral mechanisms of behavioral and psychological influences on cancer.

The 2013 synthesizes seminal research; showcases new empirical findings; and outlines future directions for basic, experimental and clinical research of behavioral, neural, endocrine, and immune system interactions in cancer. Manuscripts presenting original data and invited mini-reviews are featured from leading experts in basic biobehavioral and psychological sciences.

"Biological Mechanisms of Psychosocial Effects on Disease: Implications for Cancer Control" is a product of the Biological Mechanisms of Psychosocial Effects on Disease (BiMPED) initiative sponsored by the NCI Basic Biobehavioral and Psychological Sciences Branch (BBPSB) [formerly the Basic Biobehavioral Research Branch (BBRB)]. BBPSB, the NCI Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal, and Skin Diseases, and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research provided fiscal support for this publication.
The objective of our BiMPED initiative was to evaluate the state-of-the-science in psychoneuroimmunology and related fields, and the applicability of this research to cancer control. Articles in the 2003 special issue of Brain, Behavior, and Immunity were based on presentations from the BiMPED scientific meeting sponsored by BBPSB in March 2002. The special issue also features scientific commentaries from senior and emerging leaders in cancer-related psychoneuroimmunology. These leaders offer their unique perspective on the opportunities and challenges for future research.
