|Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST)|
- Collect and store blood samples [ Time Frame: 1 year ]To collect and store blood samples from patients with gastric cancer, GIST, esophageal cancer, pancreas cancer, hepatocellular cancer, biliary cancer, neuroendocrine, peritoneal mesothelioma, anal cancer and colorectal cancer.
- create a database for the collected tissue [ Time Frame: 1 year ]To create a database for the collected tissue and allow access to relevant clinical information for current and future protocols.
- To create tissue microarrays for each gastrointestinal cancer subtype [ Time Frame: 1 year ]To create tissue microarrays for each gastrointestinal cancer subtype, and to facilitate future molecular studies. To grant access to this database (as it is being acquired) of the coupled patient tissue samples (normal and malignant) and relevant clinical information for the investigation of tyrosine kinases, such as Met and Ron, etc., and downstream targets implicated in the pathogenesis of GI cancers. Examples of molecular testing include evaluation of DNA mutation, alternative splice variants, protein expression and phosphorylation, and immunohistochemistry on samples.
