|Official Title:||Validity Verification of Indices Utilizing TGF-b1, NF-kB, PET/CT, and MRS Predicting Response to Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Osteosarcoma Patients|
|Study Start Date :||February 2007|
|Primary Completion Date :||November 2012|
|Study Completion Date :||December 2015|
Study group will be made up of patients hospitalized to National Cancer Center, Korea, aged between 5 and 40 years, and diagnosed with high grade osteosarcoma by histological exam.
In this group, TGF-b1 measurement, PET/CT and MRS examination at diagnosis, after 1st cycle chemotherapy, and 2nd or 3rd chemotherapy (just before surgery) will be made.
In addition, evaluation of NF-kB expression status in tumor specimens at diagnostic biopsy and tumor removing surgery will be done.
The results of above studies will be correlated with the necrosis fractions of the tumor tissues removed by surgery.
- histopathologic necrosis fractions of surgically removed tumor specimen [ Time Frame: 12-17 weeks after starting chemotherapy ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
