Study Description

Brief Summary

RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of tissue, blood, and body fluid from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.

PURPOSE: This research study is collecting and storing blood and tissue samples from patients being evaluated for hematologic cancer.

Detailed Description

  • Provide source of patient tissue, blood, and body fluid samples for ongoing diagnostic, prognostic, or immune-monitoring studies.

  • Support and enhance translational, clinical and basic research for Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center (LCCC) members (and non-members who have an LCCC member as sponsor and collaborator) with IRB-approved studies.

  • Maintain responsible and appropriate policies and procedures that ensure good patient care and responsible conduct of research.

  • Address medical and legal issues, and protect participant and patient privacy and confidentiality.

  • Provide a responsible and uniform mechanism for the integrated coordination of the hemato-pathologist and surgeon or hematology/oncology staff, researcher, and protocol office to obtain appropriate specimens for researchers.

  • Support young investigators to obtain pilot data for grant funding.

OUTLINE: Patients undergo tissue, blood, and body fluid collection during diagnostic or routine procedures for future correlative studies. Tissue samples may include, but are not limited to, lymph node or non-nodal biopsies, bone marrow biopsy and/or aspirate, blood and serum, and buccal swabs for germline DNA analysis.
