RATIONALE: Studying samples of tumor 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 predict how patients will respond to treatment.
PURPOSE: This research study is looking at protein expression in tumor tissue samples from patients with stage II or stage III rectal cancer enrolled in clinical trial SWOG-9304.
- Determine expression levels of thioredoxin-1 (Trx-1), thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP), and hypoxia inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1α) in paraffin-embedded resected tumor tissue samples from patients with stage II or III rectal cancer enrolled in clinical trial SWOG-9304.
- Determine if there is a correlation between Trx-1 and TXNIP expression and HIF-1α expression.
- Correlate expression of these proteins with tumor stage, disease-free survival, overall survival, and risk of recurrence.
- Determine interactions for patient age, performance status, and type of therapy received on clinical trial SWOG-9304.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Paraffin-embedded resected tumor tissue samples are analyzed for protein expression levels (thioredoxin-1, thioredoxin-interacting protein, and hypoxia inducible factor-1 alpha) by tissue microarray and immunostaining.

The simultaneous analysis, on a microchip, of multiple samples or targets arranged in an array format.
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 analysis of an activity, procedure, method, technique, or business to determine what must be accomplished and how the necessary operations may best be accomplished.
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 set of techniques used when variation in several variables has to be studied simultaneously. In statistics, multivariate analysis is interpreted as any analytic method that allows simultaneous study of two or more dependent variables.
