The Project: Every Child Protocol: A Registry, Eligibility Screening, Biology and Outcome Study
1. To maintain a Childhood Cancer Registry1 for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer.
2. To utilize clinical and biological data to help determine eligibility or stratification, based on childhood cancer disease classification schemas, for potential enrollment of research subjects onto COG therapeutic clinical trials.
3. To develop a well annotated childhood cancer biorepository for current and future research through the collection of biospecimens (at diagnosis, time of progression, time of recurrence and/or post-mortem), including tumor, host and when feasible parental germline DNA; and key clinical data, including presentation, diagnostic, staging, summary treatment, and outcome information, from every child diagnosed with cancer at COG institutions.
4. To allow use of registry data for permission to be contacted in the future to consider participating in non-therapeutic and prevention research studies involving the child or their parents.
