Tumor Immunotherapy Register Serves As Data Center for Cancer Treatment

An International Tumor Immunotherapy Register has been established to serve as a center for collection, storage, and exchange of information on immunological methods of treating cancer.

The Registry will record physicians' experience with immunotherapy for human cancer, including methods of administration, results of the treatment, and possible side effects.

It will be kept up to date by periodic progress reports from the physicians, who will in turn receive newsletters containing summaries of the most recent information. Computers are expected to handle much of the work involved in maintaining the Registry.

NIH Marks Women's History Month

Ann Timmons, a communication artist, performed a one-woman play about equal rights pioneer Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

"Critical Thinking." That's how women at NIH change America, according to organizers of the 2005 Women's History Month celebration, who adapted the occasion's national theme — "Women Change America" — for the NIH audience.

Leading off the celebration, sponsored by NIH's Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Management on Mar. 9, Ann Timmons, a communication artist, performed the one-woman play, Off the Wall: The Life and Works of Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Author in 1892 of The Yellow Wallpaper, a semi-autobiographical account of a woman's struggle with depression, Gilman was a pundit and lecturer on equal rights for women.
