Biomarkers in Predicting Response in Patients With Advanced Ovarian Epithelial Cancer, Fallopian Tube Cancer, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer Treated on GOG-0172 or GOG-0182
Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood and 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. It may also help doctors predict how well patients will respond to treatment.
PURPOSE: This research study is looking at biomarkers in predicting response in patients with advanced ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.

|Official Title:||ERCC1 Expression as a Predictor of Progression Free and Overall Survival in Patients With Epithelial Ovarian Cancer Treated on GOG Protocols 0172 and 0182|
- Association between ERCC1 tumor expression and progression-free and overall survival
- Association between ERCC1 polymorphisms and ERCC1 tumor expression
|Study Start Date:||February 2010|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||March 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- To evaluate ERCC1 tumor expression, as measured by IHC, as a predictor of progression-free and overall survival of patients with advanced ovarian epithelial cancer.
- To correlate ERCC1 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (C8092A and codon 118) with ERCC1 tumor expression.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Blood and paraffin-embedded tumor tissue samples are analyzed for ERCC1 tumor expression by IHC and single-nucleotide polymorphisms.
