Biliary Tract Cancer Virtual Tissue Bank

We plan to create a national virtual tissue bank of tissue samples from Biliary Tract Cancer patients who have participated in a clinical trial, and their associated prospectively collected clinical trial data, for high quality, peer reviewed and ethically approved research. Samples will be collected and stored in two separate Biobanks: 1) UCL/UCLH Biobank for Studying Health and Disease 2) Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) Biobank Central Coordination of the BTC VTB will be conducted by CR UK & UCL Cancer Trials Centre (UCL CTC). To gain access to the samples Researchers will be required to submit to the BTC VTB Scientific Review Committee (SRC), via the UKCRC directory in the first instance. If approved by the SRC it will then be submitted to the Access Committee for each relevant Biobank. Samples will be collected from the following trials: • ABC-01 • ABC-02 • ABC-03 • ABC-04 • ABC-07 • Photostent-02 • ACTICCA-1

Existing samples:

  • Malignant tumor of biliary tract (disorder)
