Background

The DCP Organ Systems Research Groups develop, support and oversee clinical cancer prevention trials and promote participation by all populations. The trials are designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of promising new preventive agents, the utility of novel biomarkers and the value of innovative technologies to identify premalignant lesions. The Consortia for Early Phase Prevention Trials program was created to facilitate the efficient implementation of these studies by teams of multidisciplinary investigators.

Purpose

To stimulate information sharing and collaborations among DCP staff and consortia members including consortia coordinators and consortia investigators

To develop strategies to enhance the chemoprevention research program - both scientifically and operationally

The agenda will include the following:

  1. Review of pre-clinical data to identify potential high-priority chemoprevention agents
  2. Identification/discussion of novel agents and agent combinations
  3. Identification/discussion of intermediate endpoint biomarkers for early detection and for prevention
  4. Discussion/establishment of DCP tissue biorepository
  5. Presentation on the use of digital media and other approaches to enhance accrual
  6. Discussion of efficient/effective approaches to study management including monitoring, agent repository and regulatory requirement issues.

Attendees

Consortia PI and Site Coordinators, DCP Staff, Scientists presenting chemopreventive topics and guest speakers
