During the last 11 months of this project, the Cancer and Leukemia Croup B CALGB entered 103 breast cancer patients into the Linked Registry according to procedures specified in CALGB protocol 9484. The telephone interviews have gone smoothly, and the data entry is proceeding without difficulty. The flow of samples ftom these patients has been most satisfactory and there have been no problems with preparation of DNA from them, or with the handling of serum samples and tissue blocks. During year four accrual has increased substantially as a result of actions taken during year three. However, it is still less than originally anticipated for this project. Because of this, a no-cost one year extension of the project was requested and was subsequently approved by the sponsor. The Steering Committee has met and reviewed alternate projects for which a smaller than anticipated Registry will be of value. Although it was expected that samples would be provided to investigators during year four of the project, it has been decided to await the collection and integration of the additional samples and information that will be derived during year five of this project before committing samples for study.
