Collection Of Remaining Samples Following Drainage Of Excess Fluid From Cancer Patients


Seeking men and women who will undergo routine drainage of excess fluid from their abdomen or chest as part of their regular medical care for lung, colorectal, gastric, pancreatic, or ovarian cancer for a collection of samples to be used to develop new cancer treatments


Participants in this study will provide samples and medical data related to tumors. This information will be used in research to determine what medications may work best for these types of tumors.

What we're hoping for
