Summary

This is a sample study that will collect biological samples (blood, tumor tissue, ascites, and/or other fluids) from gynecological cancer patients for biomarker research. In addition, the results of the testing done on the samples will be given to the participant's treating physician who may use the information to guide treatment decisions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.

The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.

A collection of blood outside the BLOOD VESSELS. Hematoma can be localized in an organ, space, or tissue.

Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.

Collection of air and blood in the pleural cavity.
