Collecting and Storing Samples of Bone Marrow and Blood From Patients With Relapsed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Official Title

A Children's Oncology Group Protocol for Collecting and Banking Relapsed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Research Specimens

Summary:

This research study is collecting and storing samples of bone marrow and blood from patients with relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia or relapsed non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Collecting and storing samples of bone marrow and blood from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about cancer and help predict the recurrence of cancer.

Trial Description

Primary Outcome:

  • Banking of tumour cells and germline DNA
OBJECTIVES:
I. Establish a mechanism to bank specimens of tumour cells and host germline DNA from patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at first and subsequent relapse. II. Make these specimens available to qualified researchers to study the biology of ALL. OUTLINE:

This is a multicentre study. Patients undergo collection of bone marrow and peripheral blood at diagnosis of relapse and/or at the end of the first month of treatment. Patients are followed periodically for up to 10 years.
