|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||A Children's Oncology Group Protocol for Collecting and Banking Pediatric Brain Tumor Research Specimens|
- Collection of brain tumor tissue and an accompanying blood sample from pediatric patients with brain tumors treated at Children's Oncology Group institutions [ Time Frame: Up to 16 years ]
- Creation of a repository for long-term storage of these specimens [ Time Frame: Up to 16 years ]
- Making these specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of pediatric brain tumors [ Time Frame: Up to 16 years ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
|Study Start Date:||March 2005|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2100 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Ancillary-Correlative (tissue and blood sample collection)
Brain tumor tissue and blood specimens are collected from patients and banked for future study. There are no sample size goals for this protocol and no projected closing date.
Other: cytology specimen collection procedure
Other Name: cytologic sampling
