Prevalence of the Mutational Status of V-Ki-ras2 Kirsten Rat Sarcoma Viral Oncogene Homolog (KRAS) in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer (mCRC) in Argentine Patients

2014-08-27 03:15:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This observational, prospective, multicentric study is being conducted to record the prevalence of KRAS mutations in the Argentine mCRC population.

Description

This is an observational, prospective, non-interventional, single arm, non-comparative, open label, multi-centric, multi-stage study to record the prevalence of KRAS mutations in the Argentine mCRC population. The study is planned to be conducted in 150 centres (50 in each of 3 stages of four months each, enrolling 500 subjects in each stage). Total of subjects: 1500. Demographic information, complete medical history and tumour history related data will be captured in the first visit and if any information is missing, then only another visit will be scheduled. Data captured will be analysed and presented using statistical tools.

OBJECTIVES:

Primary objective:

- To record the prevalence of KRAS mutations in the Argentine mCRC population.

Secondary objective:

- To record and evaluate certain subject and tumour characteristics for association with KRAS mutational status (country, gender, age, performance status, body mass index (BMI), ethnic origin, personal and family history of malignancy, personal and family history of familial polyposis coli, smoking status, exercise, diet, tumour characteristics/location, site of origin of the tissue sample sent for KRAS testing, first line therapy chosen).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

A group of autosomal-dominant inherited diseases in which COLON CANCER arises in discrete adenomas. Unlike FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI with hundreds of polyps, hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms occur much later, in the fourth and fifth decades. HNPCC has been associated with germline mutations in mismatch repair (MMR) genes. It has been subdivided into Lynch syndrome I or site-specific colonic cancer, and LYNCH SYNDROME II which includes extracolonic cancer.

Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal neoplasms associated with other malignancies, more commonly of ovarian or uterine origin. When also associated with SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS, it is called MUIR-TORRE SYNDROME.

A form of LYNCH SYNDROME II associated with cutaneous SEBACEOUS GLAND NEOPLASMS. Muir-Torre syndrome is also associated with other visceral malignant diseases include colorectal, endometrial, urological, and upper gastrointestinal neoplasms.

Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.
