The AJCC-UICC Eye Cancer Task Force

"Dreams are real as long as they last, deeds remembered for a lifetime, AJCC-UICC Staging will endure." - Finger

The American Joint Committee on Cancer and the International Union Against Cancer (AJCC - UICC) have sponsored the development of an International TNM-based nomenclature for eye tumors.

This (our) efforts will allow us to collect and analyze clinical, pathological and biomarker information. The next step is to gain its acceptance so that this nomenclature can be used for clinical care, research and publication.

Our work will serve as a foundation for subsequent initiatives (see above menu):

  1. Instructions for Authors Project  
  2. Internet-based Hi-resolution Ophthalmic Pathology Teaching Slide Set
  3. International System for Eye Cancer Tissue / Genetic Banking
  4. The Universal Eye Cancer Database Project
  5. The Ophthalmic Oncology EMR Overlay  (e.g. eCancer Care)
  6. EYECancerBIG - Summary
