Why do publications about LTFU Study results refer to the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS)?

Long-Term Follow-Up Study (LTFU) is the name we use when communicating about the study with participants, while Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) is the scientific name used by researchers and the medical community. “Long-Term Follow-Up Study” emphasizes what the study is about without disclosing that some participants may be survivors of childhood cancer, thus protecting their personal health information.

You may hear about the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study or CCSS when important new findings are reported in the news. We want you to take pride in the attention the study receives, because your dedication contributes to every advance we make in protecting the health of survivors.
