Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Establish Repository of Human Bile [ Time Frame: 2024 ]
    Establish a repository of human bile that will serve as a resource through which studies can be performed looking at molecular predictors of biliary tract cancer risk.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Bile, plasma

Enrollment: 390
Study Start Date: December 2006
Study Completion Date: August 2015
Primary Completion Date: August 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
The specific aim of this study is to establish a repository of human bile to serve as a resource for studies looking at molecular predictors of biliary tract cancer. The development of fluid based biomarkers will enable early diagnosis in at-risk individuals with a recognized risk factor for cholangiocarcinoma, as well as provide surveillance mechanisms for screening populations where biliary tract cancer has a high incidence.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)

Study Population
Subjects presenting to Indiana University for treatment of biliary tract disease.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Presenting to IU for treatment of biliary tract disease; Age greater than or equal to 18

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Problems other than biliary tract disease
