Brief Summary:

The main aim of this study is to establish disease-oriented biobank to facilitate research in biology of the lumbar disc degeneration. Diverse biological samples (whole blood, plasma, disc tissue) along with MRI imaging, clinical, socio-demographic and various omics data (e.g. genomic and transcriptomic) will be available for researchers and clinicians for a variety of further multi-omics studies. It will lay the groundwork for the development of early diagnostics of DDD and its personalized treatment.

The study is planned to enroll up to 1,100 patients with different grades of lumbar disc degeneration. It is planned to recruit patients within 36 months.

Intervention Details:
  • Other: Non-interventional
    Translational, observational study

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Genotyping [ Time Frame: Through 3 years ]
    DNA will be extracted from the whole blood samples according to the standard protocol

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Phenotype of patients with lumbar disc degeneration [ Time Frame: Through 3 years ]
    General information about a patient, his medical history and MRI scans of lumbar spine

  2. Total plasma proteins N-glycosylation profiling [ Time Frame: Through 3 years ]
    The plasma glycans profiling will be performed according to standard protocol

  3. Total RNA profiling [ Time Frame: Through 3 years ]
    The intraoperative material will be homogenized and total RNA will be extracted and converted to cDNA using Kit for the isolation of total RNA and microRNA from cells and tissues and M-MuLV-RH First Strand cDNA Synthesis Kit respectively. The amount of extracted RNA and its quality will be estimated using Bioanalyzer 2100.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Whole blood samples, plasma. Intervertebral lumbar disc samples only for patients subjected for surgery.
