Retrospective Study of Genetic Risk Factors for Osteosarcoma
- Conduct a large-scale candidate gene-association study in patients with osteosarcoma
using cases from clinical trials COG-P9851 and COG-AOST06B1.
- Conduct a genome-wide association study of osteosarcoma.
- Fine-map genomic regions associated with osteosarcoma to identify putative functional
- Investigate the functional implications of promising genetic variants associated with
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Blood samples undergo polymorphism analysis of common single-nucleotide polymorphisms and
haplotypes to examine genetic variation, gene-gene interactions, and the population
