Genetic Susceptibility to Kidney Cancer
Genetic Susceptibility to Renal Cell Carcinoma

This study will further the understanding of the genetic events leading to the development of RCC; explore the genetic basis for genetic instability and how it affects cancer risk; and eventually provide a means of identifying a subgroup of individuals who are most likely to develop RCC. Such individuals may then be targeted for intervention programs such as chemoprevention or dietary modification.

Observational
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Not Provided
Retention:   Samples With DNA
Description:

We will utilize the blood collected to run several laboratory analyses that will assess DNA damage/repair, telomere length, telomerase activity, and other genetic instability as predictors of RCC risk. All information linking this unique identifier to the participant will be kept in a secure location under lock-and-key password protected.

In addition, RCC tumor and adjacent normal tissue samples may be obtained from the MDACC Institutional Tissue Bank (ITB) for cases only. The samples obtained will be left over from surgical procedures, so as to prevent any additional distress to the patient.
