Molecular Genetics Studies of Cancer Patients and Their Relatives
Sponsor: City of Hope

Within this protocol, we are hoping to learn more about susceptibility to cancer, and possible gene alteration occurrence somatic gene alterations in cancer, and outcomes after genetic cancer risk interventions. The goal is to create a confidential registry and biologic reagent repository to characterize the underlying predisposition to cancer, whether a genetic or environmental cause. Within this protocol, specific genes will be tested now or in the future. This is achieved by gathering an oral and/or written family history from participants, the collection of medical records and acquiring blood and/or mouth swabs and/or tissue specimens from participants affected with cancer with a personal or family of cancer or related conditions.
