Study for Collecting and Banking Osteosarcoma Specimens

What we are studying

Drawing samples of blood is a part of the routine evaluation of patients suspected of having cancer. When blood is drawn for routine tests, we would like to have some extra blood drawn, about eight teaspoonfuls, for research about osteosarcoma. We plan to compare the information we find out from the blood samples to information we find out from the tumor samples.
