Prospective Collection of Surplus Surgical Tumor Tissues and Pre-surgical Blood Samples

This study will enroll subjects diagnosed with various cancers and who are scheduled to
undergo surgical treatment. Prior to scheduled surgery, subjects will be asked to donate a
10-20 ml blood sample. After surgery, surplus tissues (including tumor and adjacent normal
tissues) not required for diagnosis will be collected. Subject clinical information will be
collected, including basic demographic information, medical history, family history, current
cancer history and treatment. After surgery, a final pathology report will be obtained for
each subject's surgical specimen. In some instances and based on the cancer indications
required, longitudinal data may also be collected at a frequency of every 6 months to once
per year. Longitudinal data will include information on study subject survival and disease

Inclusion Criteria:

- Any adult age

- Any sex

- Able to provide consent for surplus tissue and/or blood donation

- Diagnosed with one of the cancer indications listed below:

- Scheduled to undergo surgical resection of tumor (exception for hematological

- Have not yet received treatment for cancer

Exclusion Criteria:

- Not diagnosed with required cancer indication

- Not scheduled to undergo surgical resection of the tumor

- Have already received cancer treatment (such as chemotherapy, radiation, surgery) for
the current cancer or a previously diagnosed cancer

- Not able to donate an adequate volume of blood to meet minimum requirements

Type of Study:


Study Design:

Time Perspective: Prospective

Outcome Measure:

Tumor genetic sequence variation

Outcome Description:

The specimens collected for this project will support genomic studies on the molecular basis of cancer. This study aims to collect specimens for a project that will systematically explore a spectrum of genomic changes involved in human cancer. Specifically the project will analyze DNA copy number changes, including large (on the order of chromosomal segments) and small (1,000 to 100,000 KB) scale rearrangements, transcription profiles, epigenetic modifications, sequence variation, and sequence in both tumor tissue and case-matched germline DNA. The suite of analysis platforms for collaborating laboratories will be applied to a common set of molecular analytes obtained from clinically annotated high-quality tumor specimens and case matched normal control specimens obtained form this specimen collection study. Initial measures critical to ensure specimen quality and qualification for subsequent analysis include confirmed histopathology and RNA integrity.
