Trial Information

Arizona Cancer Center Biospecimen Repository


OBJECTIVES:

- Provide cancer investigators access to a wide variety of tissues and biospecimens for
translational studies in cancer.

- Collect and preserve tissue from the primary organ site (uninvolved and involved with
cancer), from the metastases, from patient blood (serum and lymphocytes), and from
patient urine.

- Provide quality-controlled storage and management of the specimen bank.

- Collect relevant clinical and pathologic information with appropriate privacy
protection.

- Contribute to the development of a comprehensive database annotated with relevant
clinical data, pathology, and research findings.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Tumor samples, lymph node samples, and normal pancreas tissue samples are collected. Blood
samples are also collected prior to surgery, six months after the initial blood draw and
tissue sample collection, and every six months thereafter for two years.

Inclusion Criteria


DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

- Patient who is seen at the Arizona Cancer Center or University Medical Center and
will undergo any surgery or procedure for cancer

PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS:

- NA

PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY:

As this is a biospecimen repository, participation is open to all cancer patients being
treated at the Arizona Cancer Center or University Medical Center by investigators on this
protocol.
