Blood Glycan Biomarkers in Women With Stage IV Breast Cancer
Serum Glycan Analysis in Breast Cancer

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

PURPOSE: This research study is looking at blood glycan biomarkers in women with stage IV breast cancer.

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.
