Collecting and Storing Malignant, Borderline Malignant Neoplasms, and Related Samples From Young Patients With Cancer

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT00898079


This study is collecting and storing malignant, borderline malignant neoplasms, and related biological samples from young patients with cancer. Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue, blood, and bone marrow from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future.

Official Title

A Children's Oncology Group Protocol for Collecting and Banking Pediatric Research Specimens Including Rare Pediatric Tumors

Inclusion Criteria:

   - Meets any of the following criteria:

      - Diagnosed with primary neoplasm
