Review of Molecular Profiling-Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (Rt-Pcr) in Unknown Primary Cancer
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This will be a retrospective review of 30 patients with unknown primary cancer who have had commercially available RT-PCR assays performed on biopsied tumors, in order to determine if the assay results are consistent with clinical features and useful for planning initial therapy or changing therapy.
