ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02470715
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : June 12, 2015

Brief Summary:
The primary aim of this study is to identify drivers of cancer by performing comprehensive genetic, proteomic, and metabolomic characterization of patient samples as a basis for understanding the underlying cause of disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Cancer Tumor Advanced Cancer Genetic: Molecular profile

Detailed Description:
This study involves looking at the DNA, RNA, proteins, and metabolites in blood and tissue samples collected from subjects and linking them to their health information. By doing so, researchers hope to discover the underlying molecular causes of human diseases with the hope that this information can be used for the development of diagnostic tests and more effective treatments.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Molecular profile
Molecular profiled group receiving treatment based on genetics
Genetic: Molecular profile

Other Name: Genomic targeting

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Genetic profiling [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]
    To determine genetic changes associated with the development and growth of human disease. This should lead to better ways to detect, prevent, and treat a wide variety of human health conditions, including cancer.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

Participants will have up to 3 blood tubes (about 30 ml) drawn under the condition that protocol criteria for blood sampling is met. Blood samples may be collected each time a participant undergoes a provider-ordered blood draw. Urine samples may also be collected approximately every 4-6 weeks.

Participants may be asked to provide approximately 60-120 ml of first-morning-void urine. Tissue from a standard care surgical procedure or biopsy may be obtained. Additional core biopsies (for research) or excess surgical waste will be collected during each biopsy procedure when appropriate and will be processed and stored.
