Biomarkers in Tissue Samples From Patients With Hodgkin Lymphoma Enrolled on ECOG-2496 Clinical Trial
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. It may also help doctors find better ways to treat cancer.
PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarkers in tissue samples from patients with Hodgkin lymphoma enrolled on ECOG-2496 clinical trial.
Genetic: gene expression analysis
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
|Official Title:||Outcome Prediction in Hodgkin Lymphoma by Low-Density Gene Expression Profiling of Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded Tissues: A Correlative Study of Inter-Group Trial E2496|
- Potential of gene expression profiling in changing treatment decision in cHL [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||December 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- To explore the predictive power of a gene expression-based multi-gene predictor in classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) with the potential to change clinical practice by basing treatment decisions on biological markers.
OUTLINE: Archived tissue samples are analyzed for gene expression profile using NanoString technology. Results are then compared with patients' treatment outcomes, including failure-free survival and overall survival.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 306 patients from ECOG-2496 (training cohort) and 87 patients treated with ABVD in other trials (validation cohort) will be accrued for this study.
