  Purpose

RATIONALE: Studying samples of tumor tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

PURPOSE: This research study is looking at tissue samples in predicting oral cancer in patients who have undergone neck dissection for oral cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 161
Study Start Date: March 2008
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2100 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Group 1
Patient tissue samples are screened using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for human papilloma virus-specific primers. Samples are analyzed to identify a nodal-metastasis signature for oral squamous cell carcinoma. Samples also undergo microarray analysis to quantify expression levels for targeted genes. Initial data analysis is performed using Affymetrix® Microarray Suite 5.0 to quantify expression levels for targeted genes.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To test preliminary data from node-positive oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) signatures for their ability to predict lymph-positive primaries using a cohort of OSCC tumors.
  • To perform lymph node prediction using sentinel lymph node-biopsied primaries.
  • To validate the preliminary data node-positive OSCC signature and test its ability to predict nodal status.

OUTLINE: Patient tissue samples are screened using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for human papilloma virus-specific primers. Samples are analyzed to identify a nodal-metastasis signature for oral squamous cell carcinoma. Samples also undergo microarray analysis to quantify expression levels for targeted genes. Initial data analysis is performed using Affymetrix® Microarray Suite 5.0 to quantify expression levels for targeted genes.
