First Posted : June 22, 2012
Last Update Posted : May 17, 2016
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood and tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about biomarkers related to cancer
PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking into RNA in samples from younger patients with T-cell (T) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Leukemia||Genetic: RNA analysis Genetic: proteomic profiling Other: laboratory biomarker analysis|
- Characterization of the transcriptomic landscape in diagnosis and relapse of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and the direct comparison with corresponding physiological samples (human thymus).
- Perform high-throughput transcriptome ribonucleic acid (RNA) sequencing using matched diagnostic T-precursor pediatric ALL samples (peripheral blood or bone marrow).
OUTLINE: Archived peripheral blood and bone marrow samples are analyzed for long non-coding RNA (IncRNA) expression and sequencing.
