Genetic Study to Identify Gene Mutations in Participants Previously Enrolled in Clinical Trial NCI-99-C-0053 Who Have Von Hippel-Lindau Syndrome or Are at Risk for Von Hippel-Lindau Syndrome
RATIONALE: The identification of gene mutations in individuals who have or are at risk for von Hippel-Lindau syndrome may allow doctors to better determine the genetic processes involved in the development of cancer.
PURPOSE: This genetic study is finding gene mutations in participants with von Hippel-Lindau syndrome or who are at risk for developing von Hippel-Lindau syndrome.
|Official Title:||Genetic Mutation Analysis In A VHL Population|
|Study Start Date:||December 2003|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2008|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Obtain laboratory identification and confirmation of research results for gene mutations in participants previously enrolled in NCI-99-C-0053 who have von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome or who are at risk for VHL syndrome.
- Determine genotype status in these participants.
OUTLINE: Participants submit a blood or buccal sample for genetic mutation analysis. Participants may receive genetic counseling and/or the results of genetic testing, if desired.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 260 participants will be accrued for this study.
