  Purpose

RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood, tissue, and bone marrow from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

PURPOSE: This research trial studies DNA samples from patients with Down syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia treated on COG-AAML0431 clinical trial.
