Participate in the Ependymoma Outcomes and Risk Study
— Categories: Press Release Posted on August 23, 2017
If you take part in this study, we will ask you to complete an online survey and submit a saliva sample that will be used for genetic testing to evaluate for risk factors.
CERN is expanding the work of our successful Ependymoma Outcomes Surveys to improve our understanding of risk factors associated with the occurrence of ependymoma. Research has shown that certain risk factors may increase a person’s chances of developing cancer. Factors can include exposure to chemicals or other substances, personal and family medical history.
The Ependymoma Outcomes and Risk study is designed for adults diagnosed with ependymoma. A subsequent study will include pediatric participants and their families. An update will be provided on the CERN website when this becomes available. Click the link below for participation details.
