Collection of Blood and Bone Marrow From Healthy Volunteers and Patients for Research Purposes

2014-08-27 03:59:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study is designed to provide bone marrow and/or blood cells for other research studies. Patients participating in this study will be asked to provide small amounts of medical information and undergo a limited physical examination designed to detect the presence of any obvious blood disease. A blood and bone marrow sample will be obtained to verify that the patient has normal blood cell production.

Researchers plan to obtain bone marrow samples to be used in laboratory studies directed toward understanding the formation of blood cells. Bone marrow samples will be taken from the hip bone of patients and healthy volunteers.

These samples are valuable to many research studies within the Hematology Branch of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, including studies of normal and abnormal production of blood cells, the viral causes of blood diseases, and the role of the immune system in bone marrow failure and related conditions.

Description

This protocol defines in general terms the purposes for which blood and bone marrow specimens will be collected by members of the Hematology Branch and the conditions under which the sampling will be performed. Samples of blood and bone marrow from healthy volunteers and from patients are indispensable for many research projects, including studies of normal and abnormal hematopoiesis, the viral etiology of blood diseases, and the role of the immune system in marrow failure and related conditions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of anemia in which the bone marrow fails to produce adequate numbers of peripheral blood elements.

The type species of GYROVIRUS, a small, non-enveloped DNA virus originally isolated from contaminated vaccines in Japan. It causes chicken infectious anemia and may possibly play a key role in hemorrhagic anemia syndrome, anemia dermatitis, and blue wing disease.

A rare congenital hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. The disease is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, occasional neutropenia or thrombocytosis, a normocellular bone marrow with erythroid hypoplasia, and an increased risk of developing leukemia.
