This study will evaluate patients' experiences with having gynecologic medical oncologists and surgeons offer them genetic testing, and having genetic counselors return the test results to patients over the telephone. This is different from the usual approach to genetic testing, where gynecologic medical oncologists and surgeons refer their patients to a genetic counselor in order to have these tests done, and the genetic counselors return the test results to the patient in per...
The goal of this research study is to test the effects of online genetic education alone or in combination with telephone genetic counseling in order to compare the two methods and the stress a person feels about their risk of cancer. Researchers also want to learn how these strategies may improve participant's understanding of genetics, participant's ability to complete a quiz about genetics, and participant's quality of life.
The goals of this study are: To assess the impact of genetic testing based on how it alters behaviors, to assess the utility of serum biomarker measurement in combination with genetic testing, to assess the utility of genetic counseling in personal analysis of risk for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and to assess the impact of presymptomatic genetic testing for choroidal neovascularization (CNV).
In this 6-month randomized, controlled trial, we will evaluate the impact of genetic testing for type 2 diabetes on psychological, health behavior, and clinical outcomes. Results from this study will inform the VA whether genetic counseling can be effective for communicating disease risk, motivating behavior change, and, ultimately. preventing a complex, chronic disease (type 2 diabetes). If genetic risk counseling successfully augments conventional risk counseling, this study ...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the willingness of patients with ovarian cancer to undergo genetic testing, given the cost, their understanding and acceptance of genetic testing and the possibility of targeted therapy.
The purpose of this study is to learn whether the patient might be interested in skin cancer genetic testing, and if so, what kinds of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors might result from this testing. Testing for skin cancer risk based on the MC1R gene is not currently used in clinical practice; it will be offered in this study for research purposes only.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Genetic testing for a specific enzyme may help doctors determine whether side effects from or response to chemotherapy are related to a person's genetic makeup. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study genetic testing and the effectiveness of irinotecan in treating patients who have solid tumors and lymphoma.
The primary goal of this research is to develop and test a web-based genetic education/counseling intervention. This intervention is designed to educate men from hereditary cancer families about the personal relevance of genetic testing in order to help them make decisions about whether to pursue genetic testing. The investigators will test this intervention against standard care for men from hereditary cancer families. The web-based educational intervention includes all of the...
Background: - Individuals have varying tolerances for receiving ambiguous information. However, not much is known about how ambiguous genetic testing information is received. Also, not much is known about how at-risk individuals internalize and process these results. More information is needed about how this information affects a person s life. - Lynch Syndrome is a genetic condition that carries a high risk of colon cancer and other cancers....
In the way for developing and optimizing protocol to be used as non- invasive methodology used as routine testing for PGS. This protocol is to b adapted to replace the using of life embryo cells for genetic testing and aneuploidy study as well as for any type of genetic testing including single gene disorder or HLA typing or study.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of genetic testing on healthcare decisions and patient outcomes in interventional pain management clinical care. Results of genetic testing will also be compared with the clinical outcome measures collected to discover novel genetic factors that may influence patient care.
This randomized controlled trial will evaluate whether the use of pharmacogenetic testing through a Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program has a beneficial impact on drug therapy problems. More specifically, cytochrome DNA testing, which provides information with regards to participant specific metabolism of medications, will be used in the evaluation of participant medication regimens. The overall aim of the project is to evaluate if the addition of genetic CYP testing to...
Since the gene responsible for achondroplasia was identified in 1994, it has become possible to test for achondroplasia prenatally. Moreover, prenatal genetic testing for achondroplasia is relatively simple and is highly likely to be informative for any couple seeking testing. Four diagnostic laboratories in the U.S. are currently performing prenatal genetic testing for achondroplasia. Before prenatal genetic testing for achondroplasia becomes more widely available, however,...
To evaluate two different ways of providing information about genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 alterations. The two forms of counseling are genetic counseling and enhanced informed consent which cover similar material but are organized differently.
The objective of this study is to identify and maintain a registry of well-characterized limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) patients. Patients seen as part of this study may be candidates for future treatment trials based on their defined genetic classification of LGMD. In the course of this study, the investigators will perform a muscle biopsy and DNA testing in an unlimited number of patients with clinically diagnosed LGMD. The genetic testing will be extended to the fam...
Patients meeting eligibility criteria will be randomized into two groups, one receiving pharmacogenetic testing and the other not receiving pharmacogenetic testing. In this open-label trial, a pharmacist will make medication therapy recommendations using YouScript® Personalized Prescribing System for patients who receive genetic testing and standard drug information resources per usual for patients who do not undergo pharmacogenetic testing.
This prospective Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center study will evaluate stress levels in breast cancer patients undergoing genetic testing. It aims to establish baseline stress levels, evaluate pre- and post-test stress levels at multiple time points, focus on the changes in stress levels for the different resulting subgroups. This will help the clinical staff to provide better care for patients both medically and psychologically through potential interventions to decre...
Before and after a patient receives genetic counseling they will be offered the chance to complete the survey, by their counselor. Since each patient sees only one genetic counselor that counselor will be responsible for consenting and giving and collecting the finish surveys. No identifiers will be used. The investigators will emphasize that their answers will remain anonymous throughout the entire process, and that their participation is strictly voluntary. The patient will b...
Study of the factors that affect interest in - and uptake of - genetic testing for variants that predispose to prostate cancer from the perspective of the patient.
5-10% of breast cancer patients carry a mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. Genetic counseling and DNA testing are usually offered to selected patients after primary treatment has been completed (e.g. the first year after diagnosis). For women with a mutation in one of the two breast-ovarian cancer syndrome genes, chances of a second breast cancer are high, and therefore a proportion of these women may opt for preventive measures in addition to their immediate breast cancer tr...
The project will evaluate a standardized testing protocol in detecting the cause of cardiac arrest and familial sudden death in patients with apparently unexplained cardiac arrest. The testing is directed at the detection of rare genetic conditions that result in palpitations, blackouts and sudden death in patients and their family members. Genetic testing will be performed to validate the clinical findings.
Research has shown that persons who have trouble sleeping and experience stress are at risk of developing heart diseases. Two treatments, called stimulus control instructions and sleep efficiency treatment, that do not involve sleeping pills, have been found effective in managing trouble sleeping. This study will be undertaken to find out if the two treatments are effective in improving sleep, and reducing stress and the risk of heart diseases. Persons with trouble sleeping may...
The goal of this study is to design a means of providing research families, from diverse geographical locations, the chance to receive genetic testing after having been educated by video, and meetings or telephone conversations with a genetic counselor/study professional.
RATIONALE: Identifying family and individual characteristics may help plan education and counseling for patients who are considering genetic testing. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying education and counseling to see what effect they have in patients who are undergoing genetic testing for hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (recruitment of new families with HNPCC stopped as of 04-26-06, recruitment of persons within families already participating continues).
This is a prospective research registry and prospective genetic testing cohort study. The goal is to collect personal medical and cancer history data, family cancer data, exposure history, and biospecimens to support research focused on optimal genetic testing strategies for men with prostate cancer with the ultimate goal of informing national guidelines focused on genetic evaluation for prostate cancer.
