Retrospective Case Study Examining Patient Outcomes Compared to the ChemoFx Assay in Endometrial Cancer Patients

2014-08-27 03:16:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to assess the relationship of assay sensitive patients versus assay resistant patients with progression free survival.

Description

This is a multicenter, retrospective chart review study of de-identified drug response marker results and a limited data set of clinical outcome data. Data from approximately 70 cases will be collected from approximately 10 study sites and correlated to the ChemoFx drug response marker results. The outcome of progression free survival will be defined as the period of time between the first dose of chemotherapy following the report of the marker result until clinical progression or death. Objective response will be measured from the first dose of chemotherapy following the report of the marker result until progression or change in therapy. Overall Survival will be measured from the start of chemotherapy to the actual date of death.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).

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.

The extension of endometrial tissue (ENDOMETRIUM) into the MYOMETRIUM. It usually occurs in women in their reproductive years and may result in a diffusely enlarged uterus with ectopic and benign endometrial glands and stroma.

Tumors or cancer of ENDOMETRIUM, the mucous lining of the UTERUS. These neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Their classification and grading are based on the various cell types and the percent of undifferentiated cells.

Benign proliferation of the ENDOMETRIUM in the UTERUS. Endometrial hyperplasia is classified by its cytology and glandular tissue. There are simple, complex (adenomatous without atypia), and atypical hyperplasia representing also the ascending risk of becoming malignant.
