Establishing a Tumor Bank and Initial Analysis of Germline and Tumor-Related Genetic Alterations in Families With Multiple Lymphoproliferative Malignancies
- Patients who participate will be asked to complete detailed family and medical history
questionnaires initially, with a follow-up questionnaire every year.
- Patients will be asked to supply a blood sample and possibly a mouthwash sample, both
of which can be done by mail.
- Patients will be asked to consent to the release of their lymphoma tissue block for the
purposes of the study.
- Patients will be given letters of invitation for their affected relatives to invite
them to participate.
