The National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) is pleased to announce the Request for Participant User File (PUF) applications is open. The NCDB will accept applications for organ-site specific files, including cases diagnosed between 2004 and 2013, through Feb. 19.

The NCDB PUF is a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant data file containing cases submitted to the Commission on Cancer's (CoC) NCDB. It complies with the terms of the Business Associate Agreement between the American College of Surgeons and cancer programs accredited by the CoC (in other words, no patients or facilities can be identified). The PUF is designed to provide investigators at CoC-accredited cancer programs with a data resource they can use to review and advance the quality of care delivered to cancer patients through analyses of cases reported to the NCDB. more
