Resource:Saint-Luc Tumour Bank

Name: Resource:Saint-Luc Tumour Bank
Description: When a patient suffering or thought to be suffering from cancer is cared for, samples are often taken to determine the precise diagnosis and to determine any treatment necessary. After this essential stage of the patient’s care, unused biological material is sometimes left over. This material is an essential and precious tool for research into cancer. For this reason, patients can decide to make the material available to researchers the world over who study either the development mechanism of cancer or the new treatments available. Residual samples are centralized and stored in the Tumor Bank at the Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc Cancer Centre.

The research carried out on this material primarily benefits cancer patients. It can help improve existing treatments or discover new drugs, and also allows new diagnostic tools to be tested. Any financial profits obtained from assessing the results obtained are entirely reinvested in the work of the Cancer Centre’s Tumour Bank and in new research projects at the Catholic University of Louvain.

Using and sharing material, and verification and retrospective analysis of clinical data, all comply with strict rules. As with donations of blood, marrow or organs, an Ethics Committee oversees the operations of the Tumour Bank and research projects. This committee is responsible for ensuring compliance with current Belgian and legal texts, especially those concerning the protection of patient privacy and rights.
