Abstract:

The UCLAUSC Tissue Bank was established to provide research investigators with a ready source of human tissue samples for basic and clinical research projects directed at a greater understanding of various aspects of human breast cancer. The bank has been successful at accruing some 8328 tissue samples to all of the subcomponent banks comprising the main bank. Of these tissues, 2478 are breast cancer specimens while the remaining represent specimens from premalignant and nonmalignant breast tissue, normal breast tissue, normal non-breast tissue and bone marrow and peripheral stem cells from patients with active breast cancer. Over the course of the funding period some 36 investigators have utilized material from this bank. We expect continued utilization of the bank by investigators resulting in additional publications.
