The Australian Breakthrough Cancer (ABC) Study is working with over 50,000 Australians to investigate the causes of cancer and other diseases. This study investigates the roles that our genes, lifestyle and environment play in the development of diseases to better understand the ways that they can be treated or prevented.
The ABC Study collects information that will aim to further develop ways of predicting an individual's risk of cancer, it will also refine evaluation of various cancer prevention strategies and the benefits they offer.
The study is a long-term study, tracking the health of Australians over a number of years, and building a large set of health-related information essential for making breakthroughs in the prevention of cancer and other diseases.
ABC Study participants are Australian residents, 40 to 74 years of age, who have never been diagnosed with cancer, other than non-melanoma skin cancer.
The study commenced in November 2014. We have reached our recruitment goal and are no longer accepting new registrations.
