Microarray Analysis of Gene Expression in Liver Tumors
This study aims to study the gene expression profiles of liver tumors to help us understand their biology, and to find new tumor and treatment markers for liver cancer.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Microarray Analysis of Gene Expression in Liver Tumors|
|Study Start Date:||May 1999|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2008|
|Primary Completion Date:||April 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The purpose of this research is to study of the biologic features of liver tissue (by studying their gene expression profiles), so that we can increase our understanding of the processes involved in liver cancer development and growth. This may allow us to identify more effective ways of diagnosing, treating, and predicting the outcome of patients with liver cancer.
