Scott & White Healthcare and American Cancer Society enter into partnership for prevention study
Date:10/25/2011

TEMPLE, Texas (Tuesday, October 25, 2011) - Today, Scott & White Healthcare and the American Cancer Society have announced a joint collaboration for the Cancer Prevention Study 3 (CPS-3), the first study of its kind in more than 20 years. The American Cancer Society CPS-3 study is enrolling at least 300,000 adults from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the U.S., to better understand how to prevent the disease.

Scott & White Healthcare is the first, and to date only, health system to form such a partnership with the American Cancer Society (Society) High Plains Division which covers a six-state area (TX, OK, MO, NE, KS, and HI). Scott & White will host enrollment sites and recruit community members to join the study and the Society will follow these participants for 20-30 years. Enrollment sites will be at Scott & White hospitals in Temple, Waco, and Round Rock, and potentially other locations at a later date. The enrollment period will be from late March until early April 2012.

Men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who have no personal history of cancer are invited to join this historic research study. The first CPS study, conducted in the 1950s, discovered the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer. The second such study which began in the 1980s and is still ongoing determined the link between obesity and the risk of cancer occurrence. CPS-3 will give researchers the ability to examine how not only lifestyle impacts cancer risk but genetic factors, hormonal factors and other markers in the blood that are also related to the development, or prevention, of cancer.

"This partnership is another milestone in our journey to becoming an NCI-designated cancer institute," said Andrejs E. Avots-Avotins, M.D., Ph.D., chairman of the Board of Directors at Scott & White Healthcare, and member of the Board of Directors of the Society's High Plains Division.
