Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To collect patient tumor samples that could possibly be used in a subsequent clinical vaccine trial (DF/HCC protocol 07-380). [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To gain experience in appropriate clinical processing of tumor samples and determining cell yield. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Based on feasibility of collection of blood samples of subjects, quantification of T cell subsets, regulatory T cells, activated memory effector cells, and DC phenotype at pre-surgery and post-surgery time points. [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: September 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2014
Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: Tumor collection
    Tumor collected at the time of planned surgery
Detailed Description:
  • Even if tumor sample is collected, the participant is under no obligation to participate in the vaccine study.
  • Participants will have their regularly planned surgery as described by their surgeon. During the surgery, tumor samples will be collected. We will only collect tumor that is not needed and could otherwise be thrown away.
  • The tumor samples will be frozen and placed in storage for up to two years.
