Non-treatment Protocol to Collect Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMCs) from Patients with Cancer
Local Study ID
Trial Contact Email
We are seeking patients with MM, ALL, CLL, NHL, or AML to donate peripheral blood mononuclear cells through an apheresis procedure for research related to cellular therapies for cancer patients. The research asks that you have to intravenous (IV) lines placed and undergo a procedure where blood cells will be removed and used for research. As this is not a treatment protocol, it will not impact your ongoing or planned cancer treatment. Donors will be compensated $750 for their time and travel expenses.
