|Be a part of Cancer Research 11-0357|
We are looking for women who have not been diagnosed with cancer to participate in a research study. This study plans to learn more about the immune system’s response to cancer. The immune system is a complex network of cells that identify our tissues as “self” or “foreign” as well as normal cells or cancer cells. When normal cells become cancer cells, the cells gain the ability to grow rapidly and can knock down the immune system. This is called immune suppression and is part of what allows a cancer to grow and spread throughout the body. Blood collected in this study will be compared to that of someone with cancer.
To participate you must:
*Older than 18
*Be willing to make a one-time blood donation
*Not be diagnosed with an immune disease such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis
You could make a difference in the future of women!
