Biomarkers in Urine Samples From Patients With Wilms Tumor
RATIONALE: Studying samples of urine from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify biomarkers related to cancer.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial studies biomarkers in urine from patients with Wilms tumor.
|Kidney Cancer||Genetic: proteomic profiling Other: enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay Other: laboratory biomarker analysis Other: medical chart review|
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Retrospective
|Official Title:||Discovery and Validation of Wilms Tumor Markers Using Urine Proteomics|
- Wilms tumor biomarkers identified by ELISA
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
|Study Start Date:||March 2012|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- To validate the prognostic performance of specific-candidate Wilms tumor markers by measuring their urinary concentration using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) in urine specimens collected at diagnosis from 50 patients with favorable histology Wilms tumor who relapsed and 50 patients who did not relapse.
OUTLINE: Urine specimens are analyzed using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) for biomarkers.
