  Purpose

RATIONALE: Measuring levels of calgranulin A and calgranulin B in the blood of patients with breast cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to breast cancer.

PURPOSE: This laboratory study is measuring calgranulin A and calgranulin B levels in the blood of patients with newly diagnosed stage I, stage II, or stage III breast cancer.

Further study details as provided by Case Comprehensive Cancer Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation between circulating levels of calgranulin A and calgranulin B and the presence of estrogen receptor negative breast cancer [ Time Frame: upon diagnosis ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Blood draw following diagnosis of breast cancer to assess levels of circulating tumor markers.

Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: January 2005
Study Completion Date: December 2006
Primary Completion Date: April 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Other: immunoenzyme technique
    Serum samples are evaluated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for tumor marker expression.
    Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
    Blood draw following diagnosis of breast cancer to assess levels of circulating tumor markers, calgranulin A and calgranulin B.
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine circulating levels of calgranulin A and calgranulin B in patients with estrogen receptor negative or estrogen receptor positive, newly diagnosed, primary stage I-III adenocarcinoma of the breast.

OUTLINE: This is a pilot study.

Patients undergo a blood draw following diagnosis of breast cancer to assess levels of circulating tumor markers, calgranulin A and calgranulin B. Serum samples are evaluated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for tumor marker expression.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 60 patients will be accrued for this study.
