Information for Centres Providing               T-ALL samples

1) Sample Information: we are hoping to receive samples at diagnosis on the following patients:

T-Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia:  a good 'pull' of bone marrow in EDTA or cytogenetics medium.  4-6 tubes of peripheral blood in EDTA if the peripheral blast count > 50.

T-Lymphoblastic Lymphoma: node in saline 2.

2) Forms:  the study forms for those centres where our REC approved study 'Clonal disorders of haematopoiesis' has been approved by R&D are found below:

Consent forms: parents/guardians or patient donor

Information on the research: 
ages 6-10   ages 11-15   parents/guardian   patient donor

3) Storage information pre-transport:  if possible, the samples should be kept at 4C whilst awaiting transport and should be sent as soon as is practical.  A delay of over 48 hours may render the sample unusable.

4) Transport information: if possible, fresh samples should be transferred cooled - ideally using wet ice or cool blocks in a polystyrene container, but in a jiffy bag in the fridge until collection by the courier is adequate.  Our preferred couriers are Interlink Express (tel. 01354 692975, acc. no. for billing 1324147)

5) Contact details:  for any further information or if you have a suitable patient, please contact:
