NexCura Cancer Profiler Tools Provide Patients with Treatment Information on www.nfcr.org

ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) announced today that it will incorporate NexCura(R) Cancer Profiler Tools from Thomson Reuters into its Web site.

The 20 online tools will provide cancer patients with critical, customized information about their treatment options.

"We are excited to provide a unique service like this to patients dealing with the stresses and questions that come with the diagnosis of cancer," said Franklin C. Salisbury, Jr., president of NFCR. "These tools empower cancer patients with the information they need but can't always easily find. These patients are under enough stress without having to experience difficulty in finding the information they need."

Alicia Moffat, vice president of Web operations for the Healthcare business of Thomson Reuters, explains: "The tools were created using patented technology that guides users through a step-by-step questionnaire to match the patient's diagnosis, diagnostic results, and disease stage with the relevant treatment options." All information provided by the NexCura Cancer Profiler Tools is peer-reviewed.

NFCR offers the NexCura Cancer Profiler under the Treatment Decision Tools section of its Web site (http://www.nfcr.org/patientsupport). The NexCura Cancer Profiler is the only online service generating comprehensive treatment information that is personalized for specific diagnoses and clinical status. The customized information enables patients to better communicate with their doctors and care teams and, through education, encourages the patient to play a more proactive role in treatment decisions.
