Brief Summary:
This study is collecting and storing malignant, borderline malignant neoplasms, and related biological samples from young patients with cancer. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and bone marrow from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Acute Undifferentiated Leukemia Atypical Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, BCR-ABL1 Negative Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia Childhood Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, BCR-ABL1 Positive Childhood Solid Neoplasm Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Hairy Cell Leukemia Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia Mast Cell Leukemia Neoplasm of Uncertain Malignant Potential Prolymphocytic Leukemia Secondary Acute Myeloid Leukemia T-Cell Large Granular Lymphocyte Leukemia Other: Cytology Specimen Collection Procedure

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

I. Collect malignant, borderline malignant neoplasms, and related biological specimens from Children's Oncology Group institutions for cases in which there is no disease-specific biologic protocol.

II. Provide a repository for long-term storage of malignant, borderline malignant neoplasms, and related biological specimens from these patients.

III. Make specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of cancer in these patients.

OUTLINE:

Tumor tissue samples, blood, and bone marrow aspirates are collected and stored for future analysis.
