Genetic Analysis of Toxicity Associated With High-Dose Melphalan


OBJECTIVES:

- To determine whether single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes that encode the
melphalan transporters are associated with the development and/or severity of mucositis
in patients with multiple myeloma receiving high-dose melphalan.

- To determine whether SNPs in genes that influence melphalan metabolism are associated
with the development and/or severity of mucositis in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Blood or mouthwash samples are collected and DNA isolated from these specimens is analyzed
for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in LAT1 or other candidate genes. Public
databases (i.e., dbSNP and HapMap) are reviewed to select representative SNPs for genotype
analysis.
