Definition THIS RESOURCE IS NO LONGER IN SERVICE, doc THIS RESOURCE IS NO LONGER IN SERVICE, documented on February 27, 2012. The National Cancer Institute established centers in the United States and its territories for the collection and distribution of tissues, blood and secretions from patients with clinically-characterized AIDS related malignancies in 1994. The AIDS Malignancy Bank makes these tissues available to qualified investigators in the United States for research on AIDS malignancies. It is hoped that by providing access to these high-quality specimens, research in AIDS-related malignancies will be encouraged and expanded. <br /> The AMB contains formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues, fresh-frozen tissues, malignant-cell suspensions, fine-needle aspirates, and cell lines from AIDS-related malignancies. The bank also contains serum, plasma, urine, bone marrow, cervical secretions, anal swabs, saliva semen and multi-site autopsy tissues from patients with AIDS-related malignancies who have participated in clinical trials. The bank has an associated database that contains prognostic, staging, outcome and treatment data on patients from whom tissues were obtained. Researchers pay for preparation and shipping of specimens. for preparation and shipping of specimens.
