Research Study of Genes in Tissue Samples From Patients With B-cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
Recruitment status was Not yet recruiting
RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.
PURPOSE: This research study is looking at genes in tissue samples from patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Genetic: polymorphism analysis
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
Other: pharmacogenomic studies
|Official Title:||Pharmacogenomics of Oxidative Stress-Related Genes in Lymphoma|
- Association of polymorphisms in oxidative stress-related genes with overall survival and/or progression-free survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Association of polymorphisms in these genes with rate of grade 4-5 hematologic toxicity [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||April 2009|
- To determine if toxicity following treatment for lymphoma varies according to genetic polymorphisms in oxidative stress-related genes (i.e., SOD2, CAT, GPX1, GSTM1, and GSTP1).
- To assess whether these genetic polymorphisms are associated with progression-free survival and/or overall survival in these patients treated for lymphoma.
OUTLINE: Previously collected samples are used for biomarker analysis.
