Collecting Tissue Samples From Patients With Leukemia or Other Blood Disorders Planning to Enroll in an ECOG Leukemia Treatment Clinical Trial
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of blood and bone marrow from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about diagnosing cancer and determine a patient's eligibility for a treatment clinical trial. It may also help the study of cancer in the future.
PURPOSE: This laboratory study is collecting tissue samples from patients with leukemia or other blood disorders who are planning to enroll in an ECOG leukemia treatment clinical trial.
|Official Title:||Ancillary Laboratory Protocol For the Collection of Diagnostic Material On Patients Considered For ECOG Treatment Trials For Leukemia Or Related Hematologic Disorders|
- Providing a mechanism for sample collection and submission for diagnostic review to determine eligibility for enrollment on ECOG leukemia clinical trials [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Obtaining baseline sample collection for correlative studies outlined in parent clinical trials [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||July 2004|
- To provide a mechanism for sample collection and submission for diagnostic review to determine eligibility of patients with suspected leukemia or related hematologic disorders for enrollment on ECOG leukemia clinical trials.
- To obtain baseline samples for correlative studies outlined in parent clinical trials.
OUTLINE: This is a cohort, multicenter study.
Patients submit bone marrow and/or blood samples. The samples are studied to determine patients' eligibility for ECOG leukemia treatment clinical trials. Samples may be stored for future correlative studies related to ECOG treatment clinical trials.
