|Official Title:||Genome-Wide Analysis of Genetic Alterations in Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia|
- Correlation between alteration and gene, exon, and m-RNA expression with complete remission rate, disease-free survival, cumulative incidence of relapse, overall survival, and event-free survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Associations between genome-wide DNA copy number alterations and outcome in adult ALL and comparison of these data with already generated pediatric ALL [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||October 2010|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- To perform high-resolution, genome-wide profiling of DNA copy number alterations and loss-of-heterozygosity in samples from adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) obtained at diagnosis.
- To perform candidate gene resequencing of diagnostic ALL samples.
- To examine correlation of genetic alterations with outcome.
- To examine the correlation between microarray multi-gene and multi-exon expression signatures with specific alterations and outcome.
- To understand genetic events that contribute to the formation, development, and relapse of adult ALL by integrating the copy number and sequence alterations with the multi-gene signatures, and by comparing these data with data already generated in pediatric ALL.
OUTLINE: Diagnostic, complete remission, and germ-line specimens are analyzed for DNA profiling and gene resequencing by the Affymetrix SNP6.0 microarray platform, PCR, and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). Frequency of genetic alterations are performed by the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer. Results are then compared with the data already generated from pediatric patients.
