Study of Blood Samples From Patients With Ewing Sarcoma and Their Relatives
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood in the laboratory from patients with cancer and their relatives may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.
PURPOSE: This research study is looking at blood samples collected from patients with Ewing sarcoma and their relatives.
|Official Title:||GENEWING - A Genome Wide Association Study in Ewing Sarcoma|
- Identification and characterization of susceptibility genes in patients with Ewing sarcoma
|Study Start Date:||September 2009|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||September 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- To identify and characterize a genetic susceptibility factor to Ewing's sarcoma by performing a Genome-Wide Association Study with as many as possible Ewing sarcoma patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Blood samples are collected from patients and their relatives. Blood DNA samples are analyzed for susceptibility genes of Ewing Sarcoma.
