Study of Blood Samples From High-Risk Postmenopausal Women Who Received Treatment on Breast Cancer Prevention Clinical Trials NSABP-P-1 or NSABP-P-2

Summary

RATIONALE: Studying the genes expressed in samples of blood from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

PURPOSE: This research study is looking at blood samples from high-risk postmenopausal women who received treatment on breast cancer prevention clinical trials NSABP-P-1 or NSABP-P-2.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- To identify genes associated with breast events (i.e., the occurrence of invasive breast cancer or ductal carcinoma in situ), in terms of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in a genome-wide association study, in Caucasian women at high risk of developing breast cancer who have received a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) (i.e., tamoxifen or raloxifene) on the NSABP-P-1 OR NSABP-P-2 breast cancer prevention clinical trials.

- To determine the impact of CYP2D6 metabolizer status, which includes genotype and status of concurrent use of CYP2D6 inhibitors, on breast cancer events in participants receiving either tamoxifen or raloxifene.

Secondary

- To explore whether multiple SNPs within a region are independently associated with a breast event.

- To explore whether there are interactions among SNPs that increase the risk for a breast event.

- To explore whether there is interaction of any SNPs identified in the primary objective with randomized treatment, in terms of the risk for a breast event.

OUTLINE: Samples are stratified according to CYP2D6 genotype and CYP2D6 metabolizer status.

DNA extracted from previously collected blood samples is analyzed in a genome-wide association study and compared with 2 control samples from patients who did not experience a breast event. DNA samples are used to identify and analyze single nucleotide polymorphisms.

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)

Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.

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.

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.

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)
