Abstract : During the first ten months of the third year of this project, the Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB) entered 102 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 from 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. Although accrual has increased substantially as a result of actions taken during year three, it is still less than originally anticipated for this project. The Steering Committee has met and reviewed alternate projects for which a smaller than anticipated Registry will be of value.
