Expanded Breast Cancer Registry and Tissue Repository
- To register patients diagnosed with breast cancer and information relevant to their diagnosis (such as stage, grade, hormone receptor status, etc), treatment (surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, etc), and survivorship (QoL, etc).
- To collect relevant demographics including age, menopausal status, race/ethnicity, BMI, place of residence, behaviors (smoking, alcohol intake, etc)
- To establish a paired tumor tissue and blood sample for each relevant time-point (as defined in the full protocol), which will be stored in the Tissue Bank Shared Resource Facility for future hypothesis driven research.

Institutions and/or physicians are required to report each new diagnosis of breast cancer to the New Mexico Tumor Registry (NMTR). The NMTR is a valuable database that provides information on breast cancer, including trends in incidence and survival. However, relevant information on breast cancer prognosis and treatment is either not routinely collected or not readily available to the NMTR. We propose to establish an Expanded Breast Cancer Registry and Tissue Repository at this institution that could serve as an infrastructure for collection of this information. Furthermore, a tissue bank will be established for collection of paired tissue (tumor, buccal cells and blood sample) from patients diagnosed with breast cancer who consent to providing excess/extra tissue and additional blood for the Tissue Repository. This tissue bank will serve as a repository from which researchers can access tissue samples to conduct laboratory-based studies of genetic determinants of breast cancer risks, prognosis and survival in women with breast cancer seen in this institution.
