Collecting and Storing Biological Samples From Patients With Ewing Sarcoma
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, bone marrow, and blood from patients with cancer to test in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.
PURPOSE: This research study is collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, bone marrow, and blood from patients with Ewing sarcoma.
Other: biologic sample preservation procedure
Other: medical chart review
|Official Title:||A COG Study for Collecting and Banking Ewing Sarcoma Specimens|
- Banking of biological specimens, including associated demographic and clinical data [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2008|
- Collect biological specimens, including associated demographic and clinical data, from patients with Ewing sarcoma.
- Provide a repository for long-term storage of Ewing sarcoma-related biological materials.
- Make collected specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of Ewing sarcoma and correlate these results with demographic and clinical data.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients undergo collection of tumor specimens, bone marrow, and peripheral blood at diagnosis. Associated demographic and clinical data are collected and archived.
Patients who are not enrolled on a therapeutic clinical trial are followed annually.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Not specified.
