Further study details as provided by Stanford University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Collection of tumor tissue to characterize the molecular and cell biology of tumor cells in lymphoma. [ Time Frame: The study will continue indefinitely. ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
tumor tissue

Estimated Enrollment: 9999
Study Start Date: January 1999
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2099 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
This research involves the study of lymphoma cells in order to better understand how the disease grows and spreads. This study may lead to the development of special materials that could be used, in the future, to treat lymphoma or to follow the response of lymphoma to treatment.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Any type of NHL or Hodgkin's disease.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, any cellular classification, any stage, any grade.
  • Adult or pediatric patients receiving lymph node excision for purposes other than cancer therapy (i.e. tonsillectomy, sleep apnea).
  • A routine procedure for tissue collection is planned.
  • Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients without NHL or Hodgkin's disease
