Storage of Bile From Routine Procedures to Study Risk Factors
The purpose of the study is to establish a repository of human bile as a resource for studies evaluating molecular predictors of biliary cancer risk.
Biliary Tract Cancer
|Official Title:||A Prospective Study of Human Bile and Molecular Predictors of Biliary Malignancy Risk|
- Establish Repository of Human Bile [ Time Frame: 2024 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Establish a repository of human bile that will serve as a resource through which studies can be performed looking at molecular predictors of biliary tract cancer risk.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA

|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The specific aim of this study is to establish a repository of human bile to serve as a resource for studies looking at molecular predictors of biliary tract cancer. The development of fluid based biomarkers will enable early diagnosis in at-risk individuals with a recognized risk factor for cholangiocarcinoma, as well as provide surveillance mechanisms for screening populations where biliary tract cancer has a high incidence.
