PURPOSE: This laboratory study is collecting and storing tumor tissue samples from patients with Fanconi anemia.
- Acquire rare solid tumor samples from patients with Fanconi anemia in order to create a Fanconi Anemia Cell Repository at the Oregon Health and Science University Cancer Institute.
- Study repository tissue using a variety of molecular methods, including gene microarrays.
- Develop cancer cell lines that are publicly available from tissue archived from patients with Fanconi anemia.
OUTLINE: Tumor biopsies are collected from patients with Fanconi anemia and archived for future molecular studies, cell line generation, and general usage by the research community at large. Medical information about the patient's cancer is also archived.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Not specified.

RATIONALE: Studying samples of bone marrow from patients with Fanconi anemia and from healthy participants in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and...
This pilot trial will access the toxicity and efficacy of infusion of gene modified cells for patients with Fanconi anemia (FA). Infusion of autologous patient blood stem cells that have b...
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety of the drug Etanercept (Enbrel) and to determine if this drug can help in the treatment of early bone marrow failure in patient...
Fanconi anemia (FA) is a disease that affects an individual's bone marrow. It is caused by a defective gene in the bone marrow cells that produce various types of blood cells. Individuals ...
RATIONALE: Genetic studies may help in understanding the genetic processes involved in the development of some types of cancer and may help doctors identify patients who are at risk for ca...
Reporting recently in Cell, Sumpter et al. (2016) provide evidence that Fanconi anemia (FA) pathway genes, which are mutated in the homonymous disease and are tumor suppressors known as damaged nucle...
Fanconi anemia is one of the best studied inherited cancer-prone diseases. Greatly improved protocols for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation increasingly save the lives of these young patients. H...
Fanconi anemia (FA) is an inherited bone marrow failure syndrome caused by mutations in DNA repair genes; some of these patients may have features of the VACTERL association. Autosomal recessive mutat...
Cisplatin is one of the most commonly used chemotherapy agent for lung cancer. The therapeutic efficacy of cisplatin is limited by the development of resistance. In this study, we test the effect of R...
Epidemiological studies have found a positive association between coffee consumption and a lower risk of cardiovascular disorders, some cancers, diabetes, Parkinson and Alzheimer disease. Coffee consu...
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that undergoes PHOSPHORYLATION by CDC2 PROTEIN KINASE during MITOSIS. It forms a complex with other FANCONI ANEMIA PROTEINS and helps protect CELLS from DNA DAMAGE by genotoxic agents.
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that is the most commonly mutated protein in FANCONI ANEMIA. It undergoes PHOSPHORYLATION by PROTEIN KINASE B and forms a complex with FANCC PROTEIN in the CELL NUCLEUS.
A diverse group of proteins whose genetic MUTATIONS have been associated with the chromosomal instability syndrome FANCONI ANEMIA. Many of these proteins play important roles in protecting CELLS against OXIDATIVE STRESS.
An E3 UBIQUITIN LIGASE that plays a key role in the DNA damage response pathway of FANCONI ANEMIA PROTEINS. It is associated with mono-ubiquitination of FANCD2 PROTEIN and the redistribution of FANCD2 to nuclear foci containing BRCA1 PROTEIN.
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that regulates the activities of CYTOCHROME P450 REDUCTASE and GLUTATHIONE S-TRANSFERASE. It is found predominately in the CYTOPLASM, but moves to the CELL NUCLEUS in response to FANCE PROTEIN.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Head and neck cancers
Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
