Sarcoma Alliance Announces Tissue Bank to Help Researchers
Date:7/24/2013

Ann Arbor.

"University hospitals like Stanford, Moffitt and UM are sitting on a gold mine of tissue. I have over a thousand sarcoma specimens sitting in my freezers, linked to clinical data," he said. "Unfortunately, I do not have grant money to do much with this resource."

“We have a large tissue bank here at Memorial," said William Tap, MD, section chief for sarcoma oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. The National Cancer Institute has awarded a grant to the center to study sarcoma, and SARC is collaborating, Reinke said.

The NCI pulled together physicians, scientists and advocates who compiled a 2004 report that recommended “establishing a centralized sarcoma tumor and tissue repository.”

“It’s still critical to have a centralized bank, with the resources to properly manage it and establish quality control," Dr. Tap said. One of the challenges is cost, Reinke said, as is the high demand for biospecimens.

“Sometimes institutions don’t want to send them out, she said, because they don’t want to compromise their own institution’s ability to do research.”
