Trial Information

Specimens From Normal Controls


The Viral Epidemiology Branch (VEB) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) conducts research
on viral infections and their associations with various diseases including AIDS and cancer.
For some research questions, specimens are available from "case" subjects as part of ongoing
protocols but are not available from normal "control" subjects (i.e., those without the
infection or disease under study) to whom the case subjects can be compared. This protocol
is to obtain routine specimens (usually peripheral venous blood, occasionally other body
fluid such as saliva, urine, or tears) from healthy volunteers.

Inclusion Criteria


- INCLUSION CRITERIA:

Subjects can be friends of VEB investigator or collaborator, hospital or office workers,
