Primary Outcome Measures:
  • DNA repository for long-term storage of DNA obtained from patients treated at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey [ Time Frame: Indefinite ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Investigative mechanism to allow correlations between genetic polymorphisms and clinical outcomes [ Time Frame: Indefinite ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA


Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: March 2004
Study Completion Date: May 2011
Primary Completion Date: May 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:


  • To establish a repository for long-term storage of DNA obtained from patients treated at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey.
  • To establish a mechanism whereby investigators can analyze correlations between genetic polymorphisms and clinical outcomes (e.g., response to treatment).

OUTLINE: Additional blood samples are collected for banking from patients while they are scheduled for routine blood draw as a part of their normal care. Samples are stored in a secure place under the control of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey Tissue Retrieval service. The samples may be used for DNA, RNA, or protein extraction and analyses, as well as generation of cell lines.

Demographic data (ethnicity, race, age, and sex), diagnosis, family history, and previous treatments (chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery) are recorded on the case report form and kept in a secure location in the Office of Human Research Services (OHRS).

Patients may have their samples removed and destroyed at any time.
