Last updated:3rd Aug 2007
The primary objectives of this study are: To obtain preliminary descriptive data on early changes in tumor DNA array expression following chemo-radiation of cervical cancer. These data will permit the design a future studies to correlate array expression changes with clinical outcome. To quantify the degree of therapy-induced apoptosis following chemo-radiation of cervical cancer in order to design future studies to correlate apoptosis levels with clinical outcome. To store material to later correlate the tumor DNA array expression with specific strains of tumor-related human papilloma virus (HPV) and finally to correlate changes in biomarker expression with clinical outcome and findings of the DNA array analyses.
