Role of Biomarkers in Disease Progression in Samples From Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood, tissue, and bone marrow from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.
PURPOSE: This research trial studies the role of biomarkers in disease progression in samples from patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

|Official Title:||The Role of AF1q in Progression of Leukemia|
- Subcellular localization of the MLL-AF1q fusion protein in leukemia cells
|Study Start Date:||December 2011|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
