CSER: Incorporation of Genomic Sequencing into Pediatric Cancer Care
This project includes data derived from subjects enrolled in the BASIC3 (Baylor College of Medicine Advancing Sequencing in Childhood Cancer Care) study. BASIC3 is a National Genome Human Research Institute (NHGRI) and National Cancer Institute-funded Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER) consortium project that focused on prospective implementation of clinical whole exome sequencing in the pediatric oncology clinic. The primary study objective were to integrate information from CLIA-certified germline and tumor exome sequencing into the care of newly diagnosed solid tumor patients at Texas Children's Cancer Center, and to perform parallel evaluation of the impact of tumor and germline exomes on families and physicians.
Blood and frozen tumor (if available) samples were collected from children undergoing surgery or biopsy of newly diagnosed solid tumors and subjected to exome sequencing in a CLIA-certified laboratory. Germline and tumor (if applicable) exome sequencing reports were generated and submitted into the electronic health record and returned to each patient/family by their primary oncologist.
In addition to the clinical exome sequencing, specific (optional) consent was requested for research sequencing studies. If this consent was obtained then research studies of some of the children and parents participating in the BASIC3 study (including tumor transcriptome and whole genome sequencing of blood and/or tumor) are performed.
