Estimated Enrollment: 1500
Study Start Date: May 1996
Detailed Description:

Background:

  • Patients enrolled on CCR clinical protocols may require long term follow-up to assess outcome (e.g., survival) or the effects of prior therapy.

Objectives:

-To provide follow-up for patients who are long term survivors previously enrolled Center for Cancer Research (CCR) trial but who may not currently be enrolled on a research protocol.

Eligibility:

-Patients who were previously enrolled on a CCR protocol and who are not eligible for an active NCI intramural primary research protocol.

Design:

  • The medical procedures/tests will be based on the patient's diagnosis, treatment and supporting clinical information. This is a follow-up study in which only standard tests and procedures are to be performed.
  • Clinical information that is relevant to the patients prior protocols will be collected for research purposes.
  • Procedures that entail more than minimal risk to the patient should not be performed for research purposes on this protocol.
