Preliminary Evaluation of Septin9 in Patients With Hereditary Colon Cancer Syndromes
study id #: NCT02198092
condition: Familial Adenomatous Polyposis, Map Syndrome, Lynch Syndrome, HNPCC, Colorectal Cancer
This is an observational, case-control study evaluating the quantitative level of Septin9 in plasma pre- and post-colectomy in hereditary colorectal cancer (CRC) syndrome patients (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP), Lynch syndrome (also known as HNPCC), and Multiple Adenomatous Polyposis (MAP, also known as MYK/MYH) cases) and genetically related FAP-family members as controls and references.
intervention: Other: Epi proColon Testing
start date: July 2014
estimated completion: August 2019
last updated: August 28, 2019
size / enrollment: 24
study design: Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Prospective
- Septin9 Plasma Levels [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
The primary objective of the study is the observational analysis of quantitative Septin9 plasma levels over time in hereditary CRC syndrome patients pre- and post-colectomy.
- Septin9 Plasma Levels Versus Polyps [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
Correlation of quantitative Septin9 plasma levels with the approx. number of polyps
- Pre- and Post-Colectomy Colonic Epithelial Cell Numbers [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
Correlation of circulating colonic epithelial cell number pre- and post-colectomy
- Septin9 Levels Versus Circulating Colonic Epithelial Cell Numbers [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
Correlation of circulating colonic epithelial cell number with Septin9 levels
