- To create a Registry (to be called the PCD Registry) of PCD patients
- To have participating patients complete an assessment at enrollment and to repeat the assessment longitudinally over time.
- To gather information, including patterns of patient care, that would lend support for future research in the PCD population. Specific research questions would be explored within separate IRB-reviewed protocols.
- To bank blood samples for future research involving adults with PCD's, specifically examining p16INK4a and other markers to be specified in future, separate, IRB-approved protocols as specific research questions are identified.
OUTLINE: Patients complete an assessment at baseline and then longitudinally over time which involves a multi-dimensional inter-disciplinary evaluation of a patient's functional status (ability to live independently at home and in the community), co-morbid medical conditions, cognition, psychological status, social functioning and support, medication review, and nutritional status. Patients' medical records are also reviewed.

- Creation of a Registry of Plasma Cell Disorder (PCD) patients [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
- Completion of baseline and longitudinal assessments in PCD patients [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
- Creation of information that would lend support for future PCD research [ Time Frame: 10 years ]Including patterns of patient care that would lend support for future research in patients with confirmed PCD's.
- Response rates of assessment in PCD patients and their satisfaction with the assessment [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
Done by measuring:
- percentage of patients contacted who consent to complete the assessment percentage of patients able to complete the self-administered portion of the assessment without assistance
- the length of time necessary to complete the assessment
- the variance and number of missing items
- the percentage of geriatric assessments that contain all three of the following items: Timed Up and Go Assessment, Blessed Orientation-Memor Concentration Test, and the healthcare professional-rated Karnofsky performance status.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
