The Roswell Park Hematologic Procurement Bank (formerly known as the Leukemia Tissue Bank and a part of the Pathology Network Shared Resource) provides researchers and investigators with appropriately procured and cryopreserved samples of bone marrow and peripheral blood cells, DNA, RNA, and serum/plasma samples from patients with hematological malignancies treated at our institute.
Presently, the Bank contains over 100,000 cryopreserved marrow and blood samples from patients with hematological malignancies dating from the present back to 1991 linked to a clinical database. The majority of samples are from patients with acute leukemia. Approximately 70,300 samples from 1,550 individuals with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and 11,700 samples from 260 patients with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) are currently stored in this shared resource. Samples from patients with myeloid malignancies, chronic leukemias, lymphoproliferative diseases, multiple myeloma, and other hematological disorders are also available.
The Hematological Procurement Bank also contracts with Clinical Research Services to procure, process, and store correlative peripheral blood and other biological samples on patients with a variety of solid and hematological malignancies who are receiving investigational treatment on cancer clinical trials.
