Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Collect biological specimens from patients with osteosarcoma [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Provide a repository for long-term storage of osteosarcoma-related biological materials [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Make these specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of osteosarcoma [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlate these results with the patients' clinical data [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Study Start Date: February 2008
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • To collect biological specimens from patients with osteosarcoma at Children's Oncology Group (COG) institutions.
  • To provide a repository for long-term storage of osteosarcoma-related biological materials.
  • To make these specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of osteosarcoma and correlate these results with the patients' clinical data.

OUTLINE: After the initial submission of blood samples, patients may undergo open or closed biopsy in order to obtain fresh and frozen tissue samples as well as paraffin embedded material. Patients who are enrolled at the time of initial diagnosis but then have a definitive surgery or develop recurrent disease may submit additional samples (paraffin block, frozen and fresh tumor tissue, or slides together with blood samples). Autopsy tumor samples may also be submitted.
