  Purpose

RATIONALE: Studying samples of tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that may occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking at DNA samples from patients with multiple myeloma.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Increased frequency of ≥1 polymorphic alleles associated with clinical endpoints using custom myeloma SNP chip analysis of banked DNA samples from patients with multiple myeloma [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • SNPs associated with toxicities caused by individual genetic variations affecting drug activation, distribution, metabolism, and export (ADME) [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • SNPs associated with response [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • SNPs associated with bone disease [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • SNPs associated with epidemiology (i.e., risk factors for the development of multiple myeloma) [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 600
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine whether there is an increased frequency of 1 or more polymorphic alleles that are associated with clinical endpoints using custom myeloma single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chip analysis of banked DNA samples from patients with multiple myeloma.
  • Determine SNPs associated with toxicities caused, not by variations in tumor cell genetics, but by individual genetic variations affecting drug activation, distribution, metabolism, and export (ADME).
  • Determine SNPs associated with response, influenced by the same ADME.
  • Determine SNPs associated with bone disease (as a variable) among patients with multiple myeloma.
  • Determine SNPs associated with epidemiology (i.e., risk factors for the development of multiple myeloma).

OUTLINE: This is a retrospective, multicenter study.

Banked DNA samples are analyzed using a custom single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chip to assess approximately 3,590 SNPs from 1,061 genes that are associated with myeloma growth and response.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 600 patients will be accrued for this study.
