Psychosocial Impact of Cancer in Pregnancy - A call for reseach collaboration

CCoPE
Date: 2000-06-13

Question:
There is almost no research on the psychosocial impact of pregnancy during cancer. I wrote a review of this area last year for Seminars in Oncology, and when I moved to MD Anderson in August, I asked our informatics department to pull up how many women in our institution are pregnant at diagnosis. It is only about 15 a year, at least as far as our recording goes. This is not enough to do a research project, but I remain very interested in this area. Has your consortium considered such a study, or would anyone be interested in collaborating on a grant proposal?

Answer:
Your message raises an important aspect of cancer in pregnancy. Although CCoPE has no current plans to develop such a study, we post your message here to alert other researchers of your interest. We will be glad to forward any statements of interest that come our way through this Consultative Forum and will keep your suggestion in mind for possible future development. Thank you for contacting CCoPE.
