Trial Information

AIDS and Cancer Specimen Bank (ACSB)


The overall goal of the AIDS and Cancer Specimen Bank is to obtain clinical specimens from
pathologists and physicians involved in the diagnosis and care of patients with AIDS and
non- AIDS associated malignancies. These specimens will be banked and linked to a clinical
data set so that experimental results obtained by analysis of specific specimens can be
linked to relevant clinical data. Contents of the ACSB will be made available to researchers
through an application to the National Cancer Institute. Strict patient confidentiality
protection guidelines are in place for all specimens in the ACSB. The objective of this
protocol is to obtain clinical specimens from potential participants in clinical trials
conducted by the AIDS Malignancies Consortium, and from other patients with and without HIV
infection, who have AIDS-Associated malignancies.
