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

PURPOSE: This research study is looking at genes in tissue samples from patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Condition Intervention
Genetic: polymorphism analysis
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
Other: pharmacogenomic studies

Study Type: Observational
Official Title: Pharmacogenomics of Oxidative Stress-Related Genes in Lymphoma

Further study details as provided by National Cancer Institute (NCI):

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Association of polymorphisms in oxidative stress-related genes with overall survival and/or progression-free survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Association of polymorphisms in these genes with rate of grade 4-5 hematologic toxicity [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 670
Study Start Date: April 2009
Detailed Description:


  • To determine if toxicity following treatment for lymphoma varies according to genetic polymorphisms in oxidative stress-related genes (i.e., SOD2, CAT, GPX1, GSTM1, and GSTP1).
  • To assess whether these genetic polymorphisms are associated with progression-free survival and/or overall survival in these patients treated for lymphoma.

OUTLINE: Previously collected samples are used for biomarker analysis.
