Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Family history's collection is an important step to evaluate the risk accuracy for asymptomatic members. Clinical data can be archived carefully in a family databases; a complete cancer archive requires the record of several information. Pedigree's design is necessary to approach at proband with a suspicious hereditary cancer. We develop an interactive family cancer database, with a large series of patients affected by primary gastric cancer including also a control population (cancer free). All data are stored in a set of tables, recorded in Microsoft Access. Aim of this archive is to identify individuals with family cancer history, and to manage asymptomatic members.
