The main goal of this study is to perform standardized testing of tumor tissue to learn which genes are mutated (have changed) to provide personalized cancer therapy options to patients at MD Anderson. Your doctor may be able to use testing information on your tumor to identify clinical trials that may be most relevant to you.
Another goal of this laboratory research study is to learn how often different genes mutate in patients with different cancers. Researchers will also use the information learned from this study to develop a database of the different kinds of mutations in cancer-related genes.
Researchers also hope to better understand how mutations in cancer-related genes may affect a patient's response to different therapies. Researchers can use this information to select specific therapies for future patients that are more likely to be effective.
