BioBank Research Study, Cancer Tissue
Study Type/Phase: Specimen Collection/Research Repository
During an on-going treatment or diagnostic procedure, tissue and/or blood samples are obtained to be evaluated for biomarkers. A biomarker is a component of tissue or blood that may provide a researcher with information indicating a specific medical condition. Researchers will use them to try to develop new cancer drugs or tests, as well as to study how individual differences may affect how drugs work.
