Trial Information

Molecular and Genetic Markers in the Local-regional Management of Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine local-regional control in patients undergoing radiation therapy for cancer,
as a function of expression of specific molecular/genetic markers.

Secondary

- Determine complications of radiation therapy for patients undergoing radiation therapy
for cancer.

OUTLINE: Previously collected tissue samples are analyzed using immunohistochemical staining
and other molecular/genetic study methods to detect markers, including p53, cyclin D1,
HER-2-neu, bcl-2/BAX, and EGFR. Patient charts are also reviewed with emphasis on
local-regional relapse.
