Brief Summary:
The basic premise of this research proposal is to determine whether there is any significant association between germline polymorphisms and cancers of colon, bladder, breast, testicular, prostate, ovaries, kidney, lung, lymphoid organs, and head and neck. This is an exploratory study designed to generate hypotheses for further research.

Detailed Description:
To establish significant correlations between genetic polymorphisms and cancer, a largescale, systematic comparison of genetic alterations utilizing a case-control methodology is proposed. To date, such studies have been limited due to the large number of samples necessary for obtaining statistical significance, and the lack of rapid and accurate methods to screen for genetic polymorphisms. We propose to utilize an anonymized design to obtain DNA from residual material from routine diagnostic blood tests, to link these samples to a limited set of clinical variables, and to test for the frequency of candidate low-penetrance cancer susceptibility alleles. These data will be combined with similar data from a control group of age- and ethnically-matched volunteers for a related cohort study to be conducted separately. Polymorphisms to be screened for include those involving the genes PTEN, APC, TGF βR-I, BLM, CHK2, a p85 phosphoprotein, ATM, ER, PR, MCP-1, MPIF, CCR2/5, CCR3, and SULT1A1. Cancers to be included are breast, bladder, kidney,colon, testicular, lung, prostate, ovarian, lymphoid neoplasms, and head and neck carcinomas. Genes with SNPs known to be relevant for either the development or treatment of lymphoid malignancies will also be targeted. Specifically, candidate genes will be selected from 1) cytokine signaling, 2) DNA repair, and 3) apoptosis regulatory pathways.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 2530 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Screening
Official Title: Germline Alterations of Tumor Susceptibility Genes in New York Cancer Patients
Study Start Date : March 2000
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2020


Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: 1
All incident second primary cancers of colon, breast, bladder, kidney, prostate, ovarian cancer lung cancer and lymphoid cancer diagnosed between 1999 and present will be included in the secondary design to compare second primary cancer "cases" and first primary "controls".
Genetic: PCR/PCR/LDR Strategy
Evaluate the extent to which polymorphisms in BRCA1, BRCA2, PTEN, T β R1, TGF β-1, DNA repair genes (including ATM and CHK2), APC, ER, PR, MCP-1, MPIF, CCR2/5 and CCR3 are correlated with cancer incidence. Candidate genes will also be selected from 1) cytokine signaling and 2) apoptosis regulatory pathways.

Placebo Comparator: 2
Controls will be volunteer blood donors from the New York Blood Center as well as normal volunteers from other AMDeC sites.
Genetic: PCR/PCR/LDR Strategy
Evaluate the extent to which polymorphisms in BRCA1, BRCA2, PTEN, T β R1, TGF β-1, DNA repair genes (including ATM and CHK2), APC, ER, PR, MCP-1, MPIF, CCR2/5 and CCR3 are correlated with cancer incidence. Candidate genes will also be selected from 1) cytokine signaling and 2) apoptosis regulatory pathways.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To collect anonymized germline DNA from patients with breast, bladder, kidney, lung, colon, testicular, prostate, lymphoid, ovarian or head and neck cancers, as well as patients with multiple primary cancers, from select New York City ethnic groups. [ Time Frame: 20 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To analyze DNA samples from matched non-cancer individuals of the same ethnic groups available as part of the AMDeC-sponsored New York Cancer Study. [ Time Frame: 20 years ]
