The Intestinal Multiple Polyposis and Colorectal Cancer Registry, also known as IMPACC, is a non-profit, self-help, service organization that was established in 1986. The purpose of the group is to provide information and support to people affected by multiple polyposis or hereditary colorectal cancer, their families, and their physicians. Multiple familial polyposis is a group of rare inherited conditions of the gastrointestinal system characterized by benign growths (adenomatous polyps) lining the mucous membrane of the intestine. Because such growths have high malignant potential, affected individuals may potentially develop cancer of the colon and/or rectum. The registry promotes ongoing medical research into the causes, treatment, and prevention of these disorders. IMPACC also offers a variety of services including genetic counseling, referrals to appropriate avenues of treatment, and a quarterly newsletter.
