Puerto Rico Familial Colorectal Cancer Registry on Facebook

Familial Colorectal Cancer Registry

Our long-term objective is the implementation of a population-based familial colorectal cancer registry in Puerto Rico. The primary aim is to learn more about the factors that influence Puerto Rican people to develop CRC. We are looking for particular genes (hereditary factors) and other factors in the blood and tissues in order to gain knowledge of the way people inherit diseases. In addition, we are looking for lifestyle factors that may lead to changes in genes.
