Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maintenance of a clinical database pertaining to diagnosis and treatment outcome of patients with head and neck cancer [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Development of a repository of biospecimens [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Study Start Date: February 2003
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Maintain and update a clinical database pertaining to diagnosis and treatment outcome of patients with head and neck cancer.
  • Develop a repository of biospecimens from these patients.

OUTLINE: Tumor tissue samples and/or bronchial washings are collected from patients undergoing planned surgery and/or bronchoscopy, respectively. Buccal swabs and/or mouthwash samples and saliva samples are collected. Patients also undergo blood sample collection at baseline and then every 2-6 months thereafter.

Healthy participants contribute blood samples, buccal swabs, and mouthwash samples at baseline only.

Information about medical and family history and cancer risk factors is also collected.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: No limit.
