Glioma International Case Control Study (GICC)

UID: 10713

Author(s): Bondy, Melissa L.

Study Description from dbGaP: "The main goals of the GICC Study were: 1) to identify novel genetic risk variants for glioma, as well as validate variants implicated by previous genome-wide association studies of glioma; and 2) to explore biologically relevant gene-gene and gene-environment interactions in glioma susceptibility."

Study Inclusion Criteria: "Diagnosis of histologically confirmed, supratentorial, intracranial glioma (World Health Organization (WHO) grades II-IV): fibrillary astrocytoma (International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, code 9420/3), protoplasmic astrocytoma (code 9410/3), gemistocytic astrocytoma (code 9411/3), oligodendroglioma (code 9450/3), oligoastrocytoma (code 9382/3), anaplastic astrocytoma (code 9401/3), anaplastic oligodendroglioma (code 9451/3), anaplastic oligoastrocytoma (code 9382/3), or glioblastoma (code 9440/3)
