Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Metastatic Breast Cancer
Patients with metastatic breast cancer receiving treatment with chemotherapy, endocrine therapy or targeted therapy
Other: Metastatic Breast Cancer
Blood samples will be drawn every 3 months, for up to 18 months.
Non-cancer medical illness
Patients with non-cancer medical condition
Other: Non-cancer medical illness
One blood draw (2 teaspoons)
Healthy Controls
Healthy patients being seen for an annual exam
Other: Healthy Controls
One blood draw (2 teaspoons)

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To profile serum glycan biomarkers in women with metastatic stage IV breast cancer, healthy controls, and patients with noncancer medical illness.
  • To determine whether serial serum glycan biomarkers correlate with response of metastatic disease to treatment.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Blood is collected from patients with metastatic breast cancer, patients with noncancerous illness, and healthy volunteers. Samples are analyzed for serum glycan biomarkers by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) and Fourier transform ion-cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT ICR MS) methods.

Blood samples are collected every 3 months for up to 18 months from patients with metastatic breast cancer. Patients without cancer have a single sample collected.
