Trial Information

Ascertainment of Saliva or Blood Samples For Genetic Epidemiology Studies of Cancer and Aging


This is a protocol to obtain saliva or blood samples from non-cancer affected volunteers
aged 60 years or older, without a history of cancer other than non-melanoma skin cancer.
These samples will be used in a genomic approach to elucidate novel pathways of cancer
predisposition.


Inclusion Criteria:



- Eligible subjects must be non-cancer affected volunteers of either gender who are 60
years of age or older at the time of saliva/blood donation.

- Subjects will self-identify religion and country of origin of grandparents.

- Volunteers will have (by self report) no history of cancer other than nonmelanoma
skin cancer. It is recognized that there may be some errors in self report, however,
the literature reports a very low error rate for self reported disease reporting for
cancer as assessed by interview.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Subjects with mental impairment will be excluded from this study.
