In order to learn more about follicular lymphoma and anti-cancer vaccines, we are collecting samples from people with this diagnosis. We then hope to make a vaccine from this tissue to help the immune system destroy cancer cells. We plan on keeping samples in the tissue bank indefinitely.

Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Procurement of Follicular B Cell Lymphoma Cells
    Participants will undergo the following procedure(s) that are appropriate for collecting their tissue: Blood collection, lymph node biopsy, drainage of an effusion, or bone marrow biopsy
Detailed Description:
- The following tests and procedures will be performed: Approximately 50cc of peripheral blood will be drawn and stored in the tissue bank; patients who have follicular lymphoma cells circulating in the blood will have about 40cc's of blood drawn and stored for processing; patients undergoing a lymph node biopsy will have samples of the biopsy stored; patients having fluid drained from the abdomen or from around the lung will have some of their fluid saved to cell collection and processing; patients undergoing a bone marrow biopsy will have some of the sample stored for cell collection and processing.

Ages Eligible for Study:   35 Years and older
