Open (Enrolling)

Thank you

Trial Information

A Children's Oncology Group Protocol for Collecting and Banking Osteosarcoma Specimens


- To collect biological specimens from patients with osteosarcoma at Children's Oncology
Group (COG) institutions.

- To provide a repository for long-term storage of osteosarcoma-related biological

- To make these specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of
osteosarcoma and correlate these results with the patients' clinical data.

OUTLINE: After the initial submission of blood samples, patients may undergo open or closed
biopsy in order to obtain fresh and frozen tissue samples as well as paraffin embedded
material. Patients who are enrolled at the time of initial diagnosis but then have a
definitive surgery or develop recurrent disease may submit additional samples (paraffin
block, frozen and fresh tumor tissue, or slides together with blood samples). Autopsy tumor
samples may also be submitted.

Inclusion Criteria


- All osteosarcoma patients seen at COG institutions are eligible, including the

- Newly diagnosed patients

- Patients with recurrent disease who were not enrolled at the time of diagnosis

- The following specimens from the initial biopsy (and/or definitive surgery if an
up-front resection is performed) are required:

- Paraffin embedded block OR 30 unstained slides

- Pretreatment blood consisting of 5 mL serum, 10 mL plasma, and 10 mL heparinized
whole blood

- Fresh and frozen tumor specimens


- Not specified


- Patients are not required to enter a therapeutic study to enroll on this study
