The overall objective of this project is to identify risk factors associated with the development of multiple myeloma (MM) by integrating epidemiologic, clinical and molecular information. We plan to invite MDACC patients with MM, as well as controls, to participate in this investigative case-control study. Controls will be selected from friends and spouses who accompany patients to the various MDACC clinics and will be matched to the cases on age (±5 years), gender, and ethnicity. We will obtain demographic, risk factor and clinical information along with a blood and buccal sample from all cases and controls. This study could have implications for prevention and subsequent reduction in the incidence of multiple myeloma. Collecting blood and buccal samples will allow us to study the role genetic susceptibility plays in MM risk. The specific aims are:
- To enroll and obtain, through self-administered questionnaires, risk factor information on all study participants to develop detailed demographic, epidemiologic, and behavioral profiles. This study will accrue 250 MM patients from MDACC and 250 healthy controls selected from friends and spouses who accompany patients to the MDACC clinics. Blood (25 ml) and buccal samples will be collected from all participants.
- To identify risk factors associated with MM by integrating epidemiological, clinical and molecular information using a case-control approach.
- To evaluate constitutional markers of genetic susceptibility as predictors of MM risk. Gene-environment interactions will be explored.
