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

OBJECTIVES: I. Collect malignant, borderline malignant neoplasms, and related biological specimens from Children's Oncology Group institutions for cases in which there is no disease-specific biologic protocol. II. Provide a repository for long-term storage of malignant, borderline malignant neoplasms, and related biological specimens from these patients. III. Make specimens available to ...

Malignant Pediatric Soft Tissue & Bone Tumors of the Extremities: A Retrospective Study

Background: Sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of rare tumors that arise predominantly from the embryonic mesoderm. The various sarcomas include bone sarcomas (osteosarcomas and chondrosarcomas), Ewing's sarcomas, peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumors, and soft tissue sarcomas. Soft tissue sarcomas account for approximately 1% of adult malignancies and 7% to 15% of ...

Predicting Risk of Cancer in Barrett's Esophagus

Patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) have an increased risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma which is 40-125 fold higher than in the general population. However, the current techniques of detecting dysplasia and observing abnormal p53 immunohistochemical staining are not accurate or reliable methods for determining which BE patients will progress to cancer. ...
