Promoting Universal Lynch Syndrome Screening

The Lynch Syndrome Screening Network promotes universal tumor screening (UTS) of all individuals with newly diagnosed colorectal and endometrial cancers. Our goal is to reduce the cancer burden associated with Lynch syndrome for patients and their families.

We are thrilled to announce that LSSN, in collaboration with Kintalk was awarded a grant from the Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Colorectal Cancer (CGA) to revise, house and launch the LSSN database. “Kintalk/LSSN Collaboration to Facilitate Research on Screening for Lynch Syndrome”

Cecelia Bellcross (Emory) and Amie Blanco (UCSF) spearheaded the effort, and Dr. Aparajita Singh (UCSF) was the submitting PI.

The grant will allow for the database to be revised and built on the same platform as Kintalk, which is independent of UCSF and provides the opportunity to promote cascade testing. It will include updated variables and exciting features like built-in reporting systems and data transfer capabilities.

It is anticipated that the database will be completed for beta testing by Fall 2018.  Updates will be sent via the LSSN listserv.
