DACHS study

DACHS ("Darmkrebs: Chancen der Verhütung durch Screening" (colorectal cancer: chances for prevention through screening)) is an epidemiological case-control study conducted by the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg.

Since January 2003 colorectal cancer patients and randomly selected controls without colorectal cancer are asked to participate and are personally interviewed. Individuals that act as controls are matched to patients by age, gender and place of residence. The information provided by cases and controls is then compared and analyzed to achieve further understanding concerning the prevention, etiology, progress and therapy of colorectal cancer.

Further information about the study and results up to now can be found on the study website
