Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Identification of genetic factors affecting adrenocortical tumors [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Comprehensive catalog of altered genes in adrenocortical samples [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: February 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To perform whole-genome sequencing, deep sequencing, micro RNA analysis, methylation status, copy number variation analysis, and single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) analysis in pediatric adrenocortical tumors and compare those results to those of the same patient's normal cells.

OUTLINE: Archived tumor and blood samples are analyzed for whole-genome sequencing, deep sequencing, micro RNA , methylation status, copy variation, and single-nucleotide polymorphisms. Results are then compared with patients' normal cells.
