A listing and description of longitudinal craniofacial growth record sets currently extant on the North American continent is provided. An argument is made for the preservation of these resources and for the generation of a pooled or shared image base of duplicate craniofacial physical records. This is a preliminary report and is assumed to be incomplete. In an effort to improve our accuracy and completeness, we invite corrections and additions.
The field of cancer prevention research is entering a time of growth and opportunity. This important research is identifying agents that are making a substantial difference by reducing cancer incidence in high-risk populations. Primary care providers are natural partners for this research because of their diversity, commitment to disease prevention, and long-term access to their patient population. Several national chemoprevention trials in breast and prostate cancer are open and seeking to affiliate with primary care providers. Information is provided on this research effort, the development of chemoprevention trials, and how to learn more.
