Primary Outcome Measures:
  • % necrosis post chemotherapy [ Time Frame: his is measured at the time of sample collection since we are looking for % necrosis in the sample we are collecting ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • overall survival and event free survival [ Time Frame: This is measured at the time the patient dies, or at the time when patient relapses from their disease. There is no set time since this outcome is individually assessed. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
tumor samples and blood
