  • Canadian Cancer Statistics
    • Current statistics, updated yearly since 1987, related to cancer in Canada.  This information is compiled by the National Cancer Institute of Canada (NCIC) with funding provided by the Canadian Cancer Society.
  • Cancer Mondial (IARC)
    • This website provides access to various databases containing information on the occurrence of cancer worldwide held and managed by the Section of Cancer Information (CIN) of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).  Databases include GLOBOCAN, CI5, WHO, ACCIS, IICC, ECO, NORDCAN, and SurvCan.
  • Cancer Mortality Maps from NCI
    • The Cancer Mortality Maps site provides interactive maps, graphs (which are accessible to the blind and visually-impaired), text, tables and figures showing geographic patterns and time trends of cancer death rates for the time period 1950-2004 (1970-2004 only for Blacks) for more than 50 cancers.
  • Cancer Trials
    • From the National Cancer Institute, this site provides comprehensive information on finding and understanding clinical trials, how trials are conducted, results from current trials, and recent developments in treating cancer. This service provides a database of several thousand actively recruiting clinical trials as well as those that are no longer recruiting.  This database can be searched by location, type and stage of cancer, treatment modality, and other parameters.
  • Cancer.gov - Statistical Sources
    • Links to statistical data provided by the National Cancer Institute, including statistics by specific cancers, general statistical data, ethnic and racial patterns, and links to statistical databases.  The site also includes a guide to understanding and interpreting cancer statistics.
  • Carcinogenic Potency Database (CPDB)
    • The Carcinogenic Potency Database, developed at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, provides standardized analyses of the results of 6540 chronic, long-term animal cancer tests that have been conducted since the 1950's and reported in the general published literature or by the National Cancer Institute and the National Toxicology Program.
  • CDC FastStats - Cancer
    • Provides a comprehensive synopsis of statistics on cancer in the United States. Included are statistics on incidence, cancer as a cause of death by age, sex, race and by state.
  • CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report
    • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recognized as the lead federal agency for protecting the health and safety of people - at home and abroad by providing credible information to enhance health decisions and promoting health through strong partnerships. This site provides information on current health issues, in depth reports on many diseases and epidemiological data on health in the United States.
  • cDNA xProfiler
    • The cDNA xProfiler is a tool that compares gene expression between two pools of libraries. For a gene to be "present" in a library pool, there must be at least one EST sequence found in the UniGene cluster for that gene.
  • CenterWatch Oncology Trials
    • This is a listing of industry-sponsored clinical trials that are actively recruiting patients. You can use this listing to search for clinical trials by therapeutic area and geographic region. This site lists cancer and non-cancer related clinical trials in such areas as cardiology, pediatrics, allergy and others.
  • ChemSpider
    • ChemSpider is a free chemical structure database providing fast text and structure search access to over 26 million structures from hundreds of data sources.
  • CINAHL Plus
    • This database provides full text from 1937 to the present for more than 770 journals and more than 275 books/monographs, and searchable cited references to more than 1,350 journals.  It contains more than 2.8 million records including complete coverage of English-language nursing journals and publications from the National League for Nursing and the American Nurses' Association, health care books, nursing dissertations, selected conference proceedings, standards of practice, educational software, audiovisual materials, and book chapters.  Subjects covered include nursing, biomedicine, health sciences librarianship, alternative/complementary medicine, consumer health, and 17 allied health disciplines.
  • Clinical Calculators from MD Anderson
    • MD Anderson faculty members have created several clinical calculators, also known as nomograms, to predict treatment outcomes, survival and response to specific cancer treatments. These calculators, developed in conjunction with peer-reviewed journals, helps both patients and physicians make informed decisions about cancer treatments.
  • Clinical Pharmacology
    • Clinical Pharmacology is provided by the MD Anderson Division of Pharmacy. Clinical Pharmacology is a point-of-care tool accepted by all 50 state Boards of Pharmacy as a compendium to fulfill the drug reference requirements for licensed pharmacies, and is officially recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as a drug compendium for determining the appropriate use of drugs and biologics for cancer patients.
  • ClinicalTrials.gov
    • The U.S. National Institutes of Health, through the National Library of Medicine, has developed ClinicalTrials.gov to provide patients, family members and members of the public current information about clinical research studies. The database can be searched by keyword or browsed by disease entity.
  • Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials
    • The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials is a database of definitive controlled trials. The trials are identified by Cochrane Collaboration contributors through specialized registers and references to clinical trials identified in MEDLINE and EMBASE. Though databases like MEDLINE identify trials in their database, it is not easy to identify randomized controlled trials. CCTR strives to make these easily accessible.
  • Cochrane Library
    • Updated regularly. The Cochrane Library is a unique source of reliable and up-to-date information on the effects of interventions in health care. Published on a quarterly basis, The Cochrane Library is designed to provide information and evidence to support decisions taken in health care and to inform those receiving care. The databases are: The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (Cochrane Reviews); Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE); The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL); The Cochrane Database of Methodology Reviews (Methodology Reviews); Health Technology Assessment Database (HTA); NHS Economic Evaluation Database (NHS EED); About The Cochrane Collaboration and the Cochrane Collaborative Review Groups (About)
  • Cold Spring Harbor Protocols
    • Current file. Cold Spring Harbor Protocols is a definitive, interactive source of new and classic research techniques. The database is fully searchable by keyword and subject, and it has many novel features—such as discussion forums and personal folders—made possible by online publication. Its coverage includes cell and molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, protein science, and imaging. Protocols are presented step-by-step and edited in the style that has made Molecular Cloning, Antibodies, Cells and many other CSH manuals essential to the work of scientists worldwide. Protocols will be continuously expanded, updated, and annotated by the originators and users of the techniques.
  • Collaborate Funding Network
    • Allows experts to easily establish collaborative working groups with experts within or outside their own institution including any related resources necessary to pursue specific funding opportunities. The communication and exchange can be organized and privatized at the individual, University, University System and State levels as well as by geographic location within the state. Requires that you authenticate with your home institution. Log in using your MyID and password.
  • Computer Source
    • Updated regularly. Computer Source provides researchers with the latest information and current trends in high technology. This database offers full text for nearly 300 publications and indexing and abstracts for nearly 450 publications
  • Current Controlled Trials
    • Current Controlled Trials allows users to search, register and share information about randomised controlled trials. Access to all the information on this site is free; charges for the registration services offered by Current Controlled Trials are available on request. Publication services are also available via the range of open access peer-reviewed journals published by our sister company, BioMed Central.
