A collaborative group for the study of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN-2) syndromes comprised of clinicians and laboratory scientists has been set up in the United Kingdom. Its aims are 1) to provide a basis for collaborative work on MEN-2; 2) to establish a register of patients; 3) and specifically to conduct studies aimed at defining the best policy for screening the families of apparently sporadic patients, to establish radioimmunoassays for family screening, and to identify large kindreds for genetic linkage studies using DNA polymorphisms.
