The aims of this protocol are: to collect and store diseased and normal tissue and body fluid samples from new and returning patients at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (SJCRH), affiliated sites and collaborating institutions; to collect and store samples from relatives of SJCRH patients; to collect and store retrospective and prospective pertinent corresponding clinical and laboratory data on disease characterization, treatment, and outcome; and to serve as a source of human biological samples and corresponding laboratory and clinical data.


There is no study design for this protocol. Samples obtained under IRB/IEC-approved protocols that clearly permit storage of patient material at SJCRH will be banked, provided proof of informed consent is available. Such samples will be tagged accordingly and will be only released to fulfill the aim(s) of the protocol under which they were obtained, or to investigators that apply to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Tissue Resources Committee to use the samples.
