A Children's Oncology Group Protocol for Collecting and Banking Osteosarcoma Specimens

Participants in this research study have been diagnosed with an osteosarcoma. Osteosarcoma is a type of cancer that occurs in the bones. Study doctors want to find better ways to detect and prevent osteosarcoma. To do this, they need samples of osteosarcoma tumors and some blood from people with these tumors.

The goal of this study is to collect osteosarcoma tumor specimens and blood samples from patients with these tumors. These specimens will be used by researchers to increase our knowledge about how to diagnose and treat osteosarcoma.
