Further study details as provided by University of Michigan Cancer Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Single nucleotide polymorphisms [ Time Frame: time-independent ]
    Determine single nucleotide polymorphism concordances between the three DNA specimen sources

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Retained samples will consist of a portion of the specimens collected for this concordance study: peripheral blood leukocytes, lymph nodes, and tumor tissue. All retained samples will be completely de-identified and re-numbered.

Estimated Enrollment: 120
Study Start Date: March 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2017
Primary Completion Date: May 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
Subjects will be given an informed consent to read and sign The medical chart will be reviewed for diagnosis and treatment history Blood (about 4 tablespoons) will be drawn at a clinically available time. The lymph node and breast tumor tissue in the University of Michigan pathology repository will be used for research purposes

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
breast cancer patients

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age at least 18 years of age
  • Able to read and sign the informed consent
  • Able to provide specimens: one blood draw for white blood cells, provide permission to use tissue already collected.
