CALGB 9665: THE CALGB LEUKEMIA TISSUE BANK

 

Forms:

 
Georgetown University Hospital Franklin Square Hospital Center Good Samaritan Hospital Harbor Hospital Union Memorial Hospital Washington Hospital Center
 

This study is for patients planning on being treated on a CALGB study for leukemia or myelodysplasia. Researchers from the Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB) are attempting to better understand the causes of leukemia and myelodysplasia, and to develop improved methods for the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. This study will allow the preservation and storage of a small portion of blood, bone marrow, and swabs of cells from the inside of the mouth from patients with these diseases. These materials will be used for the study of leukemia or myelodysplasia. In particular, the researchers are interested in studying particular molecules in the blood, bone marrow, and cheek cells. The exact molecules to be studied will change over time, and only the most promising will be chosen for investigation.

Subjects who have been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are being asked to give some samples (specimens) are related information for research. Specimens being collected as part of this study are bone marrow, blood, and cheek cells. This may help researchers learn more about how to prevent, find and treat cancer and other diseases. In sonme instances, this study will be necessary to determine eligibility for specific treatment on a CALGB clinical trial.
