Global BioClinical Awarded Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Contract
Date:1/29/2013

SEATTLE, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Global BioClinical (GBC) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) / National Cancer Institute (NCI) to support the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project (http://cancergenome.nih.gov).

Global BioClinical (GBC) will establish and manage a research biospecimen collection network of cancer treatment centers that will enroll subjects diagnosed with various types of cancer and who are scheduled to undergo surgical treatment for their disease.  Participating subjects will consent to donate biospecimens including a pre-surgical blood sample and resected surplus surgical tissues.  Collected biospecimens and de-identified medical and pathological information will be delivered to TCGA affiliated biospecimen testing laboratories where they will undergo analysis.  The collected biospecimens must meet a stringent set of criteria so that extracted DNA and RNA is suitable for advanced genomic analysis and sequencing technologies.

It is the overall goal of TCGA to examine a large number of biopspecimens - up to 500 samples for each tumor type - thus providing the statistical power needed to produce a comprehensive genomic profile of each cancer type and information essential to identifying the best targets for the development of new cancer treatment drugs.  In addition, all TCGA research teams are analyzing the same samples.  This results in a very complete, detailed and reliable view of cancer genomes.  For TCGA cancer samples studied, both a sample of cancerous and normal tissue will be collected. This will also allow researchers to identify the genomic changes that may play a role in the development of cancer.
