SAMPLING ISSUES IN BIOMARKER STUDIES

Cancer epidemiology studies often establish a parent population to investigate the etiologic effects of risk factors. Some putative risk factors such as demographic and behavioral characteristics are evaluated on the entire population, and new risk factors such as biomarkers (for example, sequence variants or expressions) are frequently examined as the study continues. Evaluating biomarkers on the entire parent population may not always be feasible due to logistic or cost reasons. This talk will examine the characteristics of a novel stratified sampling scheme to identify informative individuals for biomarker studies.
