Marrowforums has made a number of improvements to its Medical Resources page.

Comprehensive Cancer Centers Identified

These treatment centers have been found by the NCI to have "demonstrated reasonable depth and breadth of research activities in each of three major areas: laboratory, clinical, and population-based research, with substantial transdisciplinary research that bridges these scientific areas" and to have demonstrated "professional and public education and dissemination of clinical and public health advances into the community it serves."

You can download the NCI's list of Comprehensive Cancer Centers as a PDF file (28K), see it in plain text, or read the description and list in Spanish.

For more information about the NCI's list of Comprehensive Cancer Centers, see the NCI description and full history.

MDS Center of Excellence Identified

Treatment centers that The MDS Foundation has designated as MDS Centers of Excellence are now labeled "CoE" with this mark: Name:  coe.gif

Treatment centers apply for the "Center of Excellence" designation, rather than being selected by independent reviewers. To be listed, an institution should have an established university or equivalent program, recognized expertise in MDS, ongoing research, clinical trials, peer-reviewed publications in the field, and agree to register patients in The MDS Foundation's International MDS Patient Registry.

Designations and Registries Section

A new Designations and Registries section has been added to the Resources page, to provide these explanations.
