Topic: Registry Database Searching Capability
There is a potential wealth of info in the Registry, but analyzing it could use help. But, since it is a database, that should not be insurmountable. We need a way to put the data into subsets.
Cut the database into a subset which consists only of those people who have had resections or transplants. Then it would be possible to get an idea of what factors into that option, e.g., age, stage, etc.
Develop a subset of only those who were diagnosed at Stage IV. You could see which treatment options were most frequently used.
These are only two quick examples. Once the process is developed, you could easily check for common factors. Diabetics with Crohn's disease who had a near-relative with melanoma (just stringing things together but you get the idea).
The past has passed.
