CancerNet is a quick and easy way to obtain, through electronic mail,
recommended treatment guidelines from the National Cancer Institute's
Physician Data Query (PDQ) system. CancerNet also lets you request
information about PDQ, PDQ distributors, and other products and services
from the NCI, including a list of patient publications available from the
Office of Cancer Communications. You can access CancerNet through a number
of different networks including BITNET and Internet. There is no charge for
the service unless your local computer center charges for use of e-mail. The
CancerNet Contents List may change as new statements and other information is
included. If you have any problems accessing CancerNet, you may call
1-301-496-8880 or write to Minh Tran Rajtboriraks at [email protected]

Instructions

1. Address your mail message to:

[email protected]

[If you are not on Internet, you may have to change the format of the address.
Consult your systems manager for the correct address format.]

2. Leave the subject line of the message blank (hit CR).

3. In the body of the message:

a. If you need the CancerNet contents list, enter "help" to
receive the most current list. For example, to receive the
contents list:

To: [email protected]
Subject: < Leave this blank >
help

b. If you have the CancerNet contents list and would like to
request a particular statement or piece of information, enter
the code from the Contents List for the desired information. If
you want more than one piece of information, enter the code for
each piece of information desired on a separate line within the
message.

WARNING: Individual statements may exceed 30K and the entire
contents requires 5 MEG of storage. Please check
your storage capacity prior to submitting multiple
requests.

For example, to receive a PDQ state-of-the-art statement on
breast cancer:

To: [email protected]
Subject: < Leave this blank >
cn-100013
For example, to receive PDQ patient information statements
on colon cancer and gastric cancer):


To: [email protected]
Subject: < Leave this blank >
cn-200008
cn-200025

4. End your message. If you requested multiple items within a
single request, each item will be returned to you in a separate
message. It usually takes about 10 minutes for you to receive
your information.


The information in CancerNet is updated monthly, and many statements change
from one month to the next. If you would like to be notified via electronic
mail when CancerNet is updated each month, send a message to CancerNet with
the word "subscribe" or "subs" in the body of the message. CancerNet will
then send you a message each month telling you which statements have been
updated. [To cancel this service, send a message to CancerNet with the word
"unsubscribe" or "unsubs" in the body of the message.] See the file "monthly
PDQ statement changes" (cn-305001) for a detailed list of changes made to the
PDQ Diagnoses with the last update.
