RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood 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 studying biomarkers in patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Leukemia||Genetic: DNA analysis Genetic: mutation analysis Genetic: polymerase chain reaction Other: laboratory biomarker analysis|
- To determine whether clonally expanded somatic mitochondrial DNA mutations are associated with acute myeloid leukemia.
OUTLINE: Genomic DNA from blood samples obtained at diagnosis, remission, and relapse are analyzed for mitochondrial DNA mutations via PCR.
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||18 participants|
|Official Title:||Mitochondrial Mutations and AML|
|Study Start Date :||February 2009|
|Primary Completion Date :||March 2010|
- Association between clonally expanded somatic mitochondrial DNA mutations and acute myeloid leukemia
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
