The Expanded Breast Cancer Registry and Tissue Repository Research Team (EBCR-RT) is comprised of University of Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center faculty and staff whose goals are to improve the outcomes and quality of life of patients with breast cancer, and ultimately to eradicate and cure breast cancer. One focus of the EBCR-RT is the creation an infrastructure that can potentially be adopted as a model for a statewide registry and tissue repository for the discovery of biomarkers for this disease.
The goals of the EBCR are:
- To register patients diagnosed with breast cancer and information relevant to their diagnosis (such as stage, grade, hormone receptor status, etc), treatment (surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, etc), and survivorship (Quallity of Life, etc).
- To collect relevant demographics including age, menopausal status, race/ethnicity, body mass index (BMI), place of residence, behaviors (smoking, alcohol intake, etc)
- To establish a paired tumor tissue and blood sample for each relevant time-point (as defined in the protocol), which will be stored in the Tissue Bank Shared Resource Facility for future hypothesis-driven research.

- Identify risk factors for breast cancer [ Time Frame: 4 years ]Prospectively collect demographic, risk factor, diagnosis and treatment data and tissues (blood, buccal cells and tumor if appicable) for breast cancer patients seen at the UNM Cancer Center to assist in identification of unique factors that may impact patient prognosis in this population.
- Establish a centralized tissue repository [ Time Frame: 4 years ]Establish a centralized tissue repository (breast and related tissues) to serve as a resource for current and future scientific studies.
- Assess clinico-pathologiv variables and outcomes [ Time Frame: 10 years ]Utilize the Extended Breast Cancer Repository clinical database to determine the relationship between clinico-pathologic variables and patient outcomes.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
