Support for Human Specimen Banking in Nci-Supported Cancer Clinical Trials: The purpose of this initiative is to support the infrastructure needed to ensure the collection of, storage of, and access to high-quality, well- annotated human specimens collected from and representative of the patient populations entered into NCI-funded, phase III clinical treatment trials. The advent of powerful molecular technologies and the emergence of targeted therapeutics have opened the door to developing more effective and, in some cases, individualized treatment of patients with cancer. Access to specimens with associated high-quality clinical, treatment, recurrence, and outcome data will be critical to developing and validating the tests needed for diagnosis, target identification, and prediction of response to therapy. Developing and effectively using cancer interventions based on the comprehensive analysis of critical pathways of cancer initiation and progression will ultimately require access to specimens from patients treated in prospective randomized trials. High quality banks of uniformly collected specimens with validated clinical and outcome data will be essential for development and delivery of the new diagnostic and predictive tools that are critical to eliminating the suffering and death due to cancer by 2015. Groups organizing and carrying out phase III clinical trials are uniquely positioned to provide the high quality specimens and have the informative clinical data and resources needed to meet this challenging goal.
