The samples and data available fall under four core malignancy groups: •Hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) cancers •Uveal melanoma •Head and neck cancers •Breast cancer •Lung cancer Samples stored in the collection include, but are not limited to whole blood, cell pellets, tissue (tumour and healthy), plasma, peripheral blood mononuclear cells and urine. Samples will become part of the LCTU Post-Trial Tissue Bank upon completion of the intended primary translational objectives. Linked, anonymised data includes demographic, clinical and fully audit tracked laboratory data.
