Most important publications, guidelines, CRAB, policies includes: • North East Report (BOOK): This report on the cancer burden of 8 North Eastern states is based on the analysis of the data from 11 Population Based Cancer Registries (PBCR) and 3 Hospital Based Cancer Registries (HBCR) from 2012-14. The coverage by the PBCRs is around 35% of the population of the North Eastern states and reflects the cancer profile of the region fairly well owing to representation of all the eight states of North East partially or completely. • Three year Report on Population Based Cancer Registries-2012-2014. • Consolidated Report of Hospital Based Cancer Registries-2012-2014. • Consolidated Report of of the Hospital Based Cancer Registries: 1984 – 1993, An Assessment of the Burden and Care of Cancer Patients. • Consolidated Report of the Population Based Cancer Registries: 1990-96 • Guidelines for setting up of Population Based and Hospital Based Cancer Registries. • NCDIR Poilicy on Data Processing and Disclosure, 2017. • Handbook on National Ethical Guidelines for Biomedical and Health Research Involving Human Participants, 2018. • National Ethical Guidelines for Biomedical and Health Research involving Human Participant, 2017. • National Ethical Guidelines for Biomedical Research Involving Children, 2017. • Ethical Guidelines for Biomedical Research on Human Participants, 2006. • Policy Statement on Ethical Considerations Involved in Research on Human Subjects, 1980. • Annual Report 2016 – 2017. • Cancer Registry Abstract CARB. • CRAB – Vol. 21 No.1, October 2016. • CRAB – Vol. XIX, No.1, December 2014. • CRAB – Vol. XVIII, No.1, November 2013. • CRAB – Vol. XVII, No.1, November 2012. • CRAB – Vol. XVI, No.1, November 2011. 2.
