We used microarrays to explore the expression profiles differentially expressed in childhood adrenocortical tumors and in normal adrenal gland tissues. Pediatric adrenocortical adenoma and carcinoma patients were enrolled on the International Pediatric Adrenocortical Tumor Registry (IPACTR) and Bank protocol. Tumor specimens were harvested during surgery and snap frozen in liquid nitrogen to preserve tissue integrity. Data have been compiled for eight males and 15 females between 0 and 16 years of age. Table 1 (West et al, Cancer Research 67:601-608, 2007) summarizes the primary clinical information for each subject (excluding sample Unk1 with ACT of undetermined histology), including stage of the disease, tumor class, sex, age, relapse-free survival, and overall survival.
