RATIONALE: Studying the genes expressed in samples of blood from patients with cancer may help doctors identify biomarkers related to cancer. It may also help doctors predict how patients will respond to chemotherapy.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying blood samples in patients with breast cancer.

Condition Intervention
Breast Cancer
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis

Study Type: Observational
Official Title: Search for Genetic Factors Predictive of Response to Chemotherapy in Patients With or Who Has a Mammary Adenocarcinoma in Neo-adjuvant or Metastatic Setting
