The interface of population-based cancer registries and biobanks in etiological and clinical research--current and future perspectives.
Coebergh, Jan W
Acta oncologica (Stockholm, Sweden) 2010 Nov; 49(8): 1227-34
The availability of quality assured, population-based cancer registries and biobanks with high quality samples makes it possible to conduct research on large samples sets with long follow-up within a reasonable time frame. Defined quality for both cancer registries and biobanks is essential for enabling high quality biobank-based research. Recent networking projects have brought these infrastructures together to promote the combined use of cancer registries and biobanks in cancer research.
