Establishment of a Parathyroid Tissue Bank

Brief description of study

To develop a tissue bank library for patients with parathyroid disease who have undergone surgery and/or biopsy, and/or who may undergo surgical intervention at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center or outside centers, and/or all patients seen through the Parathyroid Center at participating sites, whether or not the patients undergo treatment for their disease. The tissue bank will contain both normal parathyroid tissue and diseased tissue, and will provide a resource for the ongoing study of parathyroid disease and management.

Detailed Study Description

Fresh residual tissue samples will be obtained during parathyroid and/or pancreas tumor intervention (for pancreas tumor intervention in MEN1 patients with hyperparathyroidism and pancreatic lesions).

In addition, outside paraffin tissue blocks or slides will be requested from patients presenting to MDACC, or to participating family members who have had prior surgery outside of MD Anderson.

Forty cubic centimeters (40 ccs) of whole blood will be obtained from individuals for peripheral blood lymphocyte, plasma, and serum separation and analysis per event. Collections may be made at any or all of the following timepoints: preoperatively, during intervention, and/or at subsequent follow-up visits for up to fifteen years.
