Tissue Repository: CTCL Collection Protocol

2016-07-22 02:53:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This document is a protocol for a non-interventional human research study in which the investigator hopes to better understand the changes that take place in T cells in Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). The purpose of this study is to establish a protocol for the collection and storage of tissue samples from patients with CTCL for future research studies. Collection and storage of tissue samples from control patients will also be carried out.

Description

CTCL is a heterogeneous group of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas characterized by chronic inflammation and accumulation of malignant T cells in the skin. In order to carry out research to expand the knowledge and develop more effective treatments, tissue samples from CTCL patients with presumed or known disorders are required and tissue samples from control patients will be required to compare the differences between affected and healthy populations.

Scientists will be able to test new ideas and new technologies that are not apparent or available at the present moment from this tissue repository in the future. This type of information will thus be of great advantage to future patients with these diseases.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Clinically benign, histologically malignant, recurrent cutaneous T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by an infiltration of large atypical cells surrounded by inflammatory cells. The atypical cells resemble REED-STERNBERG CELLS of HODGKIN DISEASE or the malignant cells of CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA. In some cases, lymphomatoid papulosis progresses to lymphomatous conditions including MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES; HODGKIN DISEASE; CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA; or ANAPLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA.

A group of lymphomas exhibiting clonal expansion of malignant T-lymphocytes arrested at varying stages of differentiation as well as malignant infiltration of the skin. MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES; SEZARY SYNDROME; LYMPHOMATOID PAPULOSIS; and PRIMARY CUTANEOUS ANAPLASTIC LARGE CELL LYMPHOMA are the best characterized of these disorders.

Anaplastic lymphoma of the skin which develops as a primary neoplasm expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. It is characterized by solitary nodules or ulcerated tumors.

B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.

Malignant lymphoma characterized by the presence of immunoblasts with uniformly round-to-oval nuclei, one or more prominent nucleoli, and abundant cytoplasm. This class may be subdivided into plasmacytoid and clear-cell types based on cytoplasmic characteristics. A third category, pleomorphous, may be analogous to some of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, PERIPHERAL) recorded in both the United States and Japan.
