Studying DNA in Tissue Samples From Caucasian and African-American Cancer Patients Who Received Docetaxel on Clinical Trial CLB-9871

Summary

RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors learn more about how docetaxel is used by the body.

PURPOSE: This research study is looking at DNA in tissue samples from Caucasian and African-American cancer patients who received docetaxel on clinical trial CLB-9871.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- To determine the genotype of ABCC2 and SLC01B3 (and other genes potentially relevant in the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of docetaxel in the future) in Caucasian and African-American cancer patients enrolled on clinical trial CLB-9871.

- Explore the relationships between these genotypes and the pharmacokinetic parameters (e.g., AUC, Vdss) of docetaxel.

OUTLINE: An aliquot from each DNA sample collected on clinical trial CLB-9871 is examined for ABCC2 and SLC01B3 genotyping using TaqMan analysis. The genotypes/haplotypes for the candidate genes will be correlated with the pharmacokinetic parameters of docetaxel and docetaxel-related toxicity.

Other genes related to the pharmacokinetics and side effects of docetaxel may be considered for future genotyping. In some cases, panels of drug response SNPs on high-density arrays may be genotyped.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

The detection of RESTRICTION FRAGMENT LENGTH POLYMORPHISMS by selective PCR amplification of restriction fragments derived from genomic DNA followed by electrophoretic analysis of the amplified restriction fragments.

Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.

Analysis based on the mathematical function first formulated by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier in 1807. The function, known as the Fourier transform, describes the sinusoidal pattern of any fluctuating pattern in the physical world in terms of its amplitude and its phase. It has broad applications in biomedicine, e.g., analysis of the x-ray crystallography data pivotal in identifying the double helical nature of DNA and in analysis of other molecules, including viruses, and the modified back-projection algorithm universally used in computerized tomography imaging, etc. (From Segen, The Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Methods for performing three-dimensional measurement and motion analysis using stereoscopic radiographs.
