  Purpose

RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood from patients with cancer and from healthy participants in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that may occur in DNA.

PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking at blood samples from patients with prostate cancer and from healthy participants to identify a polymorphism that may help in the study of prostate cancer.


Condition Intervention
Prostate Cancer Genetic: mutation analysis Genetic: polymerase chain reaction Genetic: polymorphism analysis

Study Type: Observational
Official Title: Retrospective Analysis of Endostatin Genotype in Prostate Cancer Patients to Assess the Association of a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (D104N) in Endostatin and Prostate Cancer

Further study details as provided by National Cancer Institute (NCI):

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of D104N COL18A1 polymorphism in patients with prostate cancer and in healthy participants

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of D104N COL18A1 polymorphism in African-American patients with prostate cancer and in healthy participants

Estimated Enrollment: 750
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • Determine the incidence of the D104N COL18A1 polymorphism in patients with prostate cancer.

Secondary

  • Determine the incidence of this polymorphism in African-American patients with prostate cancer.

OUTLINE: This is a retrospective, multicenter study.

DNA is extracted from preexisting serum samples and polymerase chain reaction is performed to determine the genotype pattern.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 500 patients and 250 healthy participants will be accrued for this study.
