Trial Information

Tumor Replication Error (RER) Status and Outcome in a Colon Cancer Adjuvant Chemotherapy Trial


- 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

OUTLINE: 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.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: At least 300 specimens will be accrued for this study.

Inclusion Criteria


- Patients who received chemotherapy for colon cancer as part of CALGB protocol 8896

- Underwent an initial resection for adenocarcinoma of the colon and were determined to
have a high risk of tumor recurrence based upon nodal disease or local extension of
tumor with obstruction or perforation due to tumor

- Surgical specimen blocks available, including tumor tissue and normal tissue
