Study Description

This study phs001092 PMH CCFR contains genotype and phenotype of subjects available from the phs001092 study. Summary level phenotypes for the NCI GECCO Consortium study participants can be viewed at the top-level study page phs001078 GECCO Consortium. Individual level phenotype data and molecular data for all GECCO Consortium top-level study and individual studies are available by requesting Authorized Access to the NCI GECCO Consortium phs001078 study.

This study was included as part of a GWAS consortium. The Postmenopausal Hormones Supplementary Study to the Colon Cancer Family Registry (PMH-CCFR) enrolled females residing in 13 counties in Washington State which reported to the Cancer Surveillance SEER program. Participants were between 50 and 74 years of age. Cases were identified from patients newly diagnosed with invasive colorectal adenocarcinoma between October 1998 and February 2002. Only those who could be contacted by phone and spoke English were eligible. Matched controls were randomly selected from lists of licensed drivers from the Washington State Department of Licensing and lists from the Health Care Financing Administration (now the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid). Samples that had not previously been genotyped as part of the Colon Cancer Family Registry (CCFR) and had sufficient DNA extracted from blood were genotyped.
