Collecting and Storing Blood, Bone Marrow, and Other Samples From Patients With Acute Leukemia, Chronic Leukemia, or Myelodysplastic Syndromes
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of blood, bone marrow, and DNA from other tissues from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help in the study of cancer.
PURPOSE: This laboratory study is collecting and storing blood, bone marrow, and other samples from patients with acute leukemia, chronic leukemia, or myelodysplastic syndromes.
Other: biologic sample preservation procedure
|Official Title:||The CALGB Leukemia Tissue Bank|
- Collection and storage of specimens from newly diagnosed patients with acute or chronic leukemia or myelodysplastic syndromes enrolled on a CALGB protocol [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||May 1996|
- Collect and store specimens from newly diagnosed patients with acute or chronic leukemia or myelodysplastic syndromes enrolled on a CALGB protocol.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Bone marrow aspirate and blood specimens are obtained from patients at diagnosis, remission, or relapse and stored. Buccal smears are obtained at diagnosis, and DNA is extracted and preserved.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Samples from approximately 1,500 patients will be collected for this study within 5 years.
