  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to develop tests that will allow us to determine who will react differently to the drugs used to treat cancer. We also want to see who will react differently with preparing for a bone marrow transplant.

Condition Intervention
Neoplasms Other: buccal swabs and obtaining peripheral blood

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine if genetic polymorphisms are associated with the presence and extent of chemotherapy related toxicity in pediatric bone marrow transplantation patients and the response and outcome of these patients. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine if the presence of genetic polymorphisms are associated with the response and outcome of pediatric oncology/bone marrow transplantation patients. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
peripheral blood and buccal swab

Estimated Enrollment: 128
Study Start Date: October 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
1
All Pediatric Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplantation Service patients with a histologically proven tumor for whom there is an intent to treat with chemotherapy
Other: buccal swabs and obtaining peripheral blood
will be the collection of normal cells and assessments of toxicity following chemotherapy at routine clinic visits.

Detailed Description:
The title of this study is interindividual genetic variability as a determinant of chemotherapy toxicity and response in pediatric oncology/bone marrow transplantation patients. We will collect blood from pediatric oncology/bone marrow transplantation patients who are going to receive chemotherapy in order to assess several defined genetic polymorphisms that may be involved in chemotherapy toxicity and response. The polymorphisms will be assessed on normal mononuclear cells by a combination of techniques. We will determine whether these polymorphisms occur in pediatric oncology/bone marrow transplantation patients and their correlation with different clinical features during and following therapy including toxicity and response. The presence or absence of polymorphisms will be correlated with patient outcome and tumor recurrence.
