Colon Cancer Family Registry (pkg.)

October 24, 2012

For the past 15 years the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has funded a collection of data from close to 40,000 colon cancer patients and their families.  It’s called the Colon Cancer Family Registry, and the information is used by researchers around the world to learn more about the disease. But funding has ended and researchers at Mayo Clinic are looking to find continued support for the registry in hopes of saving lives. [TRT 2:03]
