Brief Summary:


Saliva, blood, tissue, and cancer contain DNA. DNA makes the "instruction book" for the cells in the body. Cancer is caused by changes in DNA that affect cell function. Researchers want to test DNA of people with tumors. They want to look for genetic changes in tumors that could be targets for treatment. Because DNA can change as cancer changes, more testing may be done at different times.


To find the DNA changes in cancer that may help guide treatment. To collect samples and data to be used in future studies.


People any age with cancer or a pre-cancerous tumor


  • Participants will be screened with a medical history, physical exam, and blood tests. Participants will give a sample of their tumor. This is usually from a previous procedure. Participants will give a saliva or blood sample. They cannot eat, drink, smoke, or chew gum for 30 minutes before giving saliva. They will spit about 1 teaspoon of saliva into a tube.
  • Some participants may have a punch biopsy instead. A small instrument will take a small piece of skin.
  • Researchers will collect data from participants medical records.
  • Participants will answer questions about their family health history. They will also answer questions about their views on the study, including possible unexpected results.
  • Extra blood or tissue samples may be taken at other times during the participants' treatment. All samples will be saved in secure ClinOmics freezers to be used in future studies.
  • Participants will be told by their doctors if any test results affect their health or their cancer treatment.

Group A
Adult/pediatric with suspected or confirmed malignancy, family history of malignancy, undergoing surgery with no malignancy; tissues collected previously under CLIA or for research.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Identify incidental and secondary findings in germline DNA and actionable somatic mutations for reporting clinical results from a CLIA-certified lab into CRIS medical records. [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Sample analysis.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Molecular, genomic, epigenetic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomics and other "omics" profiling on tumors, malignancies and normal tissues [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Sample analysis for identification of biomarkers, drivers and medically actionable targets for clinical management.

  2. Create a tissue repository [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Repository for analysis of samples.

  3. Extraction and storage of circulating tumor DNA [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Storage of samples.

  4. Establishing Patient-derived models [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Analysis of samples.

  5. Cryopreservation of viable tumor tissue for future study [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Sample storage for future analysis.

  6. Establishment of EBV transformed cell lines for research [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Analysis of germline samples.

  7. Creation of an OncoGenomics oversight committee [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Oversight and development of new treatment approaches.

  8. Assessment of effects of the informed consent process [ Time Frame: ongoing ]
    Survey data collection and analysis.

Study Population
Samples for the population cohort will be selected from patients that are co-enrolled on other NIH protocols (both inpatient and outpatient) as well as community referrals from outside NIH.

Adult or Pediatric patients with one of the following:

  • Diagnosis of any tumor, malignancy, pre-malignant disorder, or suspected cancer susceptibility familial syndromes, regardless of patient age; OR
  • Individuals without history of malignancy who are undergoing surgery; OR
  • Individuals without a history of cancer but evidence of an inherited cancer syndrome based on family history and/or other manifestations of the syndrome (i.e. polyposis, plexiform neurofibromas, myelodysplastic syndrome); OR
  • Tissue (including tumor, normal, blood, serum, plasma, or other tissues) that has been previously collected under CLIA and maintained in a CLIA lab which is available for CLIA analysis.
  • Tissue (including tumor, normal, blood, bone marrow, serum, plasma, or other tissues) that has been previously collected and is available for research analysis.
  • Biospecimens can be collected with minimal additional risk to the subject during sampling or procedures required for routine patient care.
  • Individual may be undergoing treatment for malignancy, premalignant condition or receiving other care associated with an inherited cancer syndrome.
  • Ability of subject or Legally Authorized Representative (LAR) to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent; OR
  • IRB waiver of the requirement for informed consent for specific types of tissue.
