  Purpose

RATIONALE: Analyzing the structure of genes found in a person's cancer cells may help doctors improve methods of treating patients with colon cancer.

PURPOSE: Clinical trial to study the genes of patients treated with chemotherapy for colon cancer.


Condition Intervention
Colorectal Cancer Genetic: mutation analysis Genetic: tumor replication error analysis

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Tumor Replication Error (RER) Status and Outcome in a Colon Cancer Adjuvant Chemotherapy Trial

Further study details as provided by Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • disease free survival [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
  • tumor replication error status [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
  • determine the prognostic and predictive values for response to this therapy [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Samples of tumor and normal tissue

Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: August 1998
Study Completion Date: January 2006
Primary Completion Date: January 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Samples of tumor and normal tissue
Samples of tumor and normal tissue are obtained from CALGB 8896 patients. The samples are tested for somatic mutations and tumor replication error (RER) tumor status. Patients do not receive the results of the genetic testing and the results do not influence the type or duration of treatment.
Genetic: mutation analysis Genetic: tumor replication error analysis

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the relationship between disease free survival, overall survival, and tumor replication error status for patients who have received adjuvant chemotherapy for colon cancer on CALGB protocol 8896.
  • Determine the prognostic and predictive values for response to this therapy in these patients.
