Biomarkers in Patients With Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma Treated With Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Rituximab
Recruitment status was Not yet recruiting
RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors predict how well patients will respond to treatment.
PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarkers in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma treated with combination chemotherapy with or without rituximab.
Genetic: gene expression analysis
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
|Official Title:||Gene Expression Profiling Using Paraffin-embedded Tissues and the Nuclease Protection Assay in Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) Treated With CHOP or R-CHOP: An ECOG and SWOG Correlative Study of E4494|
- Identification of genes predictive of clinical outcome [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Identification of genes that change their prognostic profile with the addition of rituximab to CHOP chemotherapy [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||July 2010|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- To identify genes predictive of clinical outcome (failure-free survival and overall survival) among patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma treated with CHOP or R-CHOP induction on ECOG-E4494 using the nuclease protection assay for measuring gene expression in paraffin-embedded tissue.
- To identify genes that change their prognostic profile with the addition of rituximab to CHOP chemotherapy.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Unstained formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples are analyzed for gene expression via nuclease protection assay.
