an Opt-Out Choice

Last Updated : 2022.06.13

Precautions

Our patient opt-out policy permits participants to choose whether they want to use their personal information and specimens provided for our medical research. According to the policy of the Japanese Government, patients or people acting as their proxies have the right to alter the opt-out choice they made when giving informed consent for the medical research. We are currently announcing the above protocols for the opt-out opportunities. Please note, however, that we may not be able to identify individuals once their personal information and specimens provided for our medical research have been anonymously processed.
