An Observational Follow-Up Study of the Incidence of Cancer and Mortality in Patients From the SEAS (Simvastatin and Ezetimibe in Aortic Stenosis) Trial

2014-08-27 03:15:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this extension is to observe the incidence rates of cancer, total mortality, and mortality due to cancer over a 21 month follow-up period in patients from the SEAS trial (2004_050, MK0653A-043; NCT00092677).

Description

The SEAS Follow-up Study is a 21 month extension to the base protocol (2004_050, MK0653A-043; NCT00092677). The main objective of the extension is to observe the incidence rates of cancer, total mortality, and mortality due to cancer over a 21 month follow-up period (from 04-March 2008 to 31-December 2009) in patients from the SEAS clinical trial. The sources of study data will include data collected from national cancer and death registries as well as data from the original clinical trial. No patient visits will occur. National cancer and death registries exist in 5 of the 7 countries that participated in the base SEAS trial. Registries do not exist in Ireland and Germany. As a result, data will be collected only for all SEAS patients known to be alive at the end of the base study originating from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and the United Kingdom.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.

A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
