Collecting and Storing Blood and Brain Tumour Tissue Samples From Children With Brain Tumours

Official Title

A Children's Oncology Group Protocol for Collecting and Banking Pediatric Brain Tumour Research Specimens

Summary:

The purpose of this study is to collect and store brain tissue samples and blood from children with brain cancer that will be tested in the laboratory. Collecting and storing samples of tumour tissue and blood from patients to test in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.

Trial Description

Primary Outcome:

  • Collection of brain tumour tissue and an accompanying blood sample from pediatric patients with brain tumours treated at Children's Oncology Group institutions
  • Creation of a repository for long-term storage of these specimens
  • Making these specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of pediatric brain tumours
OBJECTIVES:
I. Collect brain tumour tissue and an accompanying blood sample from pediatric patients with brain tumours treated at Children's Oncology Group institutions. II. Provide a repository for long-term storage of specimens from these patients. III. Make these specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of pediatric brain tumours. OUTLINE:

This is a multicentre study. Brain tumour tissue and blood specimens are collected from patients and banked for future study.
