Verified by University of Wisconsin September 2005

Sponsored by: University of Wisconsin
Information provided by: University of Wisconsin Identifier: NCT00214227


The purpose of this study is to compare the baseline incidence of variant alleles in the ATM and/or other DNA repair genes present in the Native American population versus the non-Native American population. It is thought that a higher baseline incidence of the variant alleles in the ATM gene may correlate to higher rates and higher grades of radiation toxicities noted in the Native American population
