The purpose of this study is to develop blood tests and urine tests that can tell doctors how much radiation a person has been exposed to. Doctors know how much radiation patients are exposed to in certain medical situations. An example of this would be radiation treatment for cancer. Radiation treatment machines are programmed to give exact doses of radiation.
MSKCC patients undergoing TBI as part of a hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) will have blood drawn and urine collected for use in the validation and refinement of new methods for rapid high-throughput radiation biodosimetry. These blood and urine samples will be collected before, and at defined times after TBI. Blood sampling will occur in the same manner that it does during routine patient care during HSCT.

Testing erythrocytes to determine presence or absence of blood-group antigens, testing of serum to determine the presence or absence of antibodies to these antigens, and selecting biocompatible blood by crossmatching samples from the donor against samples from the recipient. Crossmatching is performed prior to transfusion.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.
