Study of Prostate Samples in Predicting Cancer Recurrence in Patients With Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:19:19 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Studying prostate samples 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 predict how patients will respond to treatment.

PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying prostate samples in predicting cancer recurrence in patients with prostate cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Develop a data model (nomogram) that incorporates patient age, biopsy, Gleason score, and a molecular profile incorporating promoter methylation status at selected genes and RNA expression from the hTERT component of telomerase.

- Explore the performance of this model in predicting the likelihood of biochemical recurrence.

- Describe the performance and Gleason score determined on resected prostate specimens.

OUTLINE: Patients undergo expressed prostatic secretion sample collection before robotic-assisted prostatectomy for biomarker analysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques used in the diagnosis of disease. Included are such techniques as IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION of chromosomes for CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS; OLIGONUCLEOTIDE ARRAY SEQUENCE ANALYSIS of gene expression patterns in disease states; identification of pathogenic organisms by analysis of species specific DNA sequences; and detection of mutations with POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION.

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)

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.
