Collecting Tissue Samples for Future Research From Women Undergoing Surgery for Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue from patients with breast cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about cancer.
PURPOSE: This phase I study is collecting tissue samples for future research from women undergoing surgery for breast cancer.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) in Breast Cancer: Tissue and Specimen Collection|
- Collect human breast tissues and associated clinical-pathologic data [ Time Frame: At time of diagnosis, surgery, and throughout standard care and clinical follow-up. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
Tissue from diagnostic biopsies, as well as initial or follow-up surgical procedures for the treatment or prevention of breast cancer. No extra tissue is taken, only what is left over following clinical use will be retained for banking purposes.
|Study Start Date:||August 2001|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||January 2020|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Collect breast tissue for future research from women undergoing surgery for breast cancer.
- Create microarrays by tumor type for internal use by Specialized Program of Research Excellence.
OUTLINE: Tumor tissue is collected and analyzed to create microarrays by tumor type for future research studies.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 1,250 patients will be accrued for this study.
